Kate Colin is a designer based in Glasgow who works with paper to create handmade sculptural lighting.
Growing up with a mathematician father who filled the house with complex polyhedra models, she developed an inherent appreciation of the beauty and variety of three dimensional forms from an early age.
In her current practice, she is interested in variations of light, colour and geometric form and uses a range of intricate paper folding techniques to explore how they interact with one another.
Fascinated by how the slightest variation of angle or fold can alter the final structural form, her work is an experimental process and constantly evolving. Every piece is unique and when illuminated, their appearance is radically transformed: folds, creases and angles become emphasised while an intensity of colour is brilliantly revealed.
Kate has successfully showcased at various venues and is a deserving recipient of Craft Council Hot House programme 2016.
