'I love paper," says Sara Sheridan of Along Came the Fold – a statement that is really no surprise considering everything the Vancouver studio offers is made out of folded, sliced or otherwise tailored paper. "I love how paper can be turned into art. It's evolving into something more sophisticated and luxurious, something more personal that people will want to keep and not throw away."
Her latest creation certainly has the qualities of an heirloom in the making: the handmade Blossom pendants made from Gmund, a German paper brand, and clothing dye.
Though each fixture has the same bone structure, the dye can alter each piece of paper in myriad ways, meaning that each finished product is surprisingly unique considering all the folds are the same. "Making these lamps really taught me to let go of the outcome of a product," Sheridan says. "The dying process itself is its own entity. I can't control everything, so I accept the unpredictable, and often beautiful and unique results." From $100 through alongcamethefold.com
