Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa! (and whatever other holidays that I may have missed which you may celebrate in your country)
Wishing you all a joyful and relaxing holiday!
Here are some pretty cool hand crafted paper artworks and designs!
The Emerald Omar by The Makerie Studio:
“Life sized peacock created for Channel 4’s Four Rooms as part of our Omar series, and sold to Peter Ratcliffe.
The piece is created entirely using hand-printed Chiyogami papers, with gold foil and Swarovski crystals used for the finishing touches on the face and beak.”
AMV BBDO Window Display by The Makerie Studio:
“Christmas 2011 Window display for London’s leading advertising agency; inspired by Swan Lake, we created a 3 metre-tall swan for the agency’s foyer, as well as ballet shoes, baubles and a curtain of smaller swans for the 9-floor staircase. This was a side effect:
3,240 concertinas folding,
240m nylon stringing,
203 clips crimping,
128 circles cutting,
110 swans swinging,
100m paper glueing,
45 beads threading,
– 32 silver bows –
6 friendly helpers
2 ballet shoes
… and a cartridge in an HP.”
