Wirin Chaowana

In awe of these sculptures created by paper craft artist and designer, Wirin Chaowana. The Bangkok-based artist was influenced by Thailand’s traditional fresh flower arrangements. Complex folding and geometric forms replaces the organic flowers in these delicate paper decorations. On an interview with Bangkok Post she reveals this about her project:

“Folding has been my favourite hobby since childhood. I find it fascinating when you can turn a flat, thin sheet of paper into three-dimensional shapes. It creates the perception of depth, light and shadow. It brings paper to life.”

“I fused the beauty of traditional flower arrangements with my personal passion for paper to present Thai flower works in a modern way. The collection is called “Pub Piab Riab Roy” as each word represents the whole construction process. “Pub” is to fold, “piab” means a lot of paper, “riab” is smooth and “roy” is to thread.”
