Edinburgh-based sculptor Polly Verity interlocks domes, orbs, and other curved structures by strategically folding large sheets of paper and polypropylene. The result of these intricate manipulations is landscapes of patterns that seem to rise effortlessly from their 2D material. Her works tesselate from one shape to the other, repeating both hard-edged and curved shapes throughout the folded sculptures.
