"I began to experiment widely with technical and philosophical alternatives to folding paper as a model making activity. I wanted to make people ask 'why?' rather than 'how?', and to make objects that were aesthetically pleasing, not just clever." Paul Jackson

origami artist paul jackson's pleated bowl is folded paper sculpture at it's finest. before folding, he hand colors each sheet of paper with charcoal or dry pastels and seals the paper to create a surface with a matte lustre. i can still remember miss heimer's fourth grade lesson on how to fold a paper cup. it sparked a life long appreciation for origami and more than a decade of practice. i still make a mean jumping frog, but i don't think jackson has anything to worry about.

curious about plicated?
