Peel’s folded porcelain project is an exploration in materiality and geometry. Like much of her work, it makes use of the effect of light, shadow and reflection, the interplay of form and surface, and the inherent aesthetic and textural qualities of the material. To create such a large and intricate piece, Peel uses tessellating, three-dimensional pieces of folded porcelain that lock into one another to create an infinitely repeatable pattern.
