paperwhite by bradley bowers

PaperWhite by Bradley L. Bowers is a series of vases created from paper that explore the ideas of beauty, decay, life, death and permanence.

Each vase was constructed with no desired form in mind, only a desired size. Using the natural properties of Cotton Rag Paper and water/wood-glue “soup” the vases were molded and pushed and then allowed to dry. Once dry I picked flowers from the area around my work area and arranged them with no particular outcome in mind. No water can be added to the vases without the consequence of destroying them; one must choose between keeping the vase or keeping the flowers.
