Taiwan’s Cai-Xuan Wu created an interesting collection of jewelry by applying textile techniques and laser cutting technology to sheets of acrylic.

Wu transforms 2 dimensional sheets of acrylic into sculptural forms by ‘knitting’ the cut plastic. For the Plankton Series, the artist cut 100 sheets using the same pattern, then applied the unconventional ‘knitting’ technique to create 100 different forms. Lots of inspiration in these shapes. . .

“My challenge is to use non-textile materials to transform a traditional craft technique into a contemporary art work which pushes the boundary of material and making technique.” Cai-Xuan Wu
