California artist Ann Weber transforms the ordinary medium of cardboard into impressive large-scale sculptures reminiscent of pods, gourds, and organic spires.

The sculptures have the appearance of large baskets woven into monumental forms with a rich patina created from layers of shellac applied to the surface. Visitors walk among and through the towering shapes, some as large as 16 feet tall, in an oversized wonderland of contoured forms.

Ann, who began her career as a ceramic artist, started working with the lighter medium of cardboard in 1991 and finds great interest in the possibility of making beautiful objects from common and mundane materials. Ann's abstract sculptures read as metaphors for life experiences such as the balancing acts that define our lives. She often works with this question in mind: “How far can I build this before it collapses?"
