Morana Kranjec - Folded and Cut



The level of complexity found in Morana Kranjec’s folded fashions appears to defy logic. The seams where paper slides into paper are hidden, giving no clue to their construction. In organized chaos the sheets stack upon each other, slashed and delicately twisted to expose the gaps and…

The Time Between Posts!

Gets longer and longer.



I need to get into the habit of posting more frequently.



The last couple of weeks have been very busy, mainly working on the cufflinks for the Caledonian Sleeper which I am not allowed to show you until after the press-launch on 23rd March. It is a real production job and not the sort of thing I really enjoy, even though I am going to be so incredibly proud to know that my work is part of something so big and impressive.

Other than that,…
