I was attracted to a creased sheet of sugar paper, discounted by others in the drawing class as no longer useful.  The natural reaction when throwing away paper is to crumple it into a ball.  This ‘ball’ or ‘spheroid’ became a fascinating sculpture with multiple surfaces , textures and tones – something worthy of attention.  I repeated the experiment with two other sheets of used paper and then with a piece of fabric woven with found threads and bare iron wire.

 The challenge is to know when to stop ‘crumpling’!
