Ellie’s involvement with paper as a textile medium began as a student at Goldsmiths College when she visited Hayle Mill in Kent and witnessed cotton and linen rags being made into paper.
‘I like being in control of what constitutes a ‘mould’, the character of the pulp, the surface on which it is dried and in the end use of the ‘paper’.
Depending on how it is dried and the nature of the pulp, it can be either three dimensional or flat, fragile, soft or robust. This dialogue between materials, process and ideas and the concept that paper can be a means of expression in its own right informs Ellie’s paper pieces which use a range of hand-made, purchased and found papers.
