A vase of infinite folds and surfaces

Using the waste paper from the process of permanently pleating fabric for fashion garments LeAmon’s vase is a bronze casting created from and displaying a folded surface, patinated in antiquity green.


A decade ago French philosopher Gilles Deleuze wrote ‘The Fold’ an exploration of the writings of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz a German polymath and philosopher. A text, which has since inspired and influenced critical thinking into contemporary aesthetics, arts and sciences. A vase of infinite folds and surfaces by Simone LeAmon is a homage to Deleuze and his place in history as one of the greatest post-structuralist philosophers.

LeAmon’s vase uses the waste paper from the process of permanently pleating fabric for fashion garments. The paper is rolled many times on itself to produce a cylinder and immersed in molten wax repeatedly to build a structure sufficient for lost wax casting. The result is a bronze casting created from and displaying a folded surface, patinated in antiquity green.
