Emerald Cities

The start of a series of miniature papier mache urban landscapes. For some reason, the Emerald City of The Wizard of Oz came into my head, and so I chose that color for these minimalized remembrances of the towers of New York City, where I grew up. Though they are objects of fantasy, these table sculptures have a practical side — they fold up, accordion- and book-wise, to lie flat for storage and to fit into different spaces and displays.
