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.”

You can see more of her work on Behance and Facebook.

Falk Brito Origami

FalkBritoOrigamiAdmiring these origami embellishments created by Brasilia-based artist Falk Brito. In his youth he folded planes, boats and hats and was not familiar with the term, “origami”. He learned his first fold from a Sansei student and origami has since become his passion, giving it a more contemporary appeal with the use of pastel and earthy papers. You can follow him on Facebook and see more of his work here on Instagram.

AdelineKlamPlanning to do more paper projects this year starting with these stars made from origami papers. We found these designs on French blog, Adeline Klam. They’re great as holiday ornaments but can also be used year round as gift package trims. With the proper paper choices the stars can be simple and elegant as shown above or fun and colorful.
