2019: Portable Reusable Inflatable Paper Votive Kit for Meditation on the Seven Virtues

Seven Virtues Closed / and open illuminated

“Portable Reusable Inflatable Paper Votive Kit for Meditation on the Seven Virtues” is a paper kit for contemplation. The set represents my appreciation for the historical representation of the cardinal and theological virtues, continued love of votives (as a result of my Catholic upbringing), appreciation of this beloved / simple origami form, the influence of spending the better part of a month sick in bed with the ability to draw on my iPad, and the the desire to create the opposite of my Seven Deadly Sins book.

The set premiered in December 2019.
