Online PR News – 25-June-2015 – London – Exhibiting this week at the annual New Designers 2015 expo in London, fabric artist Sue Williams has captured her love and the beauty of the Welsh coast in striking and functional lighting design.

By applying the folding methods of, paper art, Origami to lengths of white buckram and muslin, Sue has transformed the plain fabrics into bold and complicated three dimensional forms. The artist has then applied subtle lights, centred within the hollow orbs and cylinders, to accentuate the folds, ridges and tucks; each piece casting a delicate shadow as bespoke as the work itself.

Sue Williams is an Applied Art and Design graduate from Glyndwr University, Wrexham. Working from her studio on Anglesey, North Wales, Sue has taken much of her inspiration from the local landscape, "If you look closely, you start to see folds in everything; crashing waves, rock formations even passing clouds. It's these natural forms that gave influenced the work I'm displaying at New Designers 2015."

Each light exhibited at the London show is unique. Pieces range from large scale,free standing, lamps with chrome stands, to wall mounted and smaller desk lights. The lights are available to purchase as displayed o n the shows completion. Commissions for private and commercial clients are also available.
