Extraordinaries: Paper Wonders VOL. I

Hi everyone!
I've been wanting to make a tribute to paper art for a long time...There are so many fantastic artists and so many different techniques for making masterpieces using this paltry material. I have so many favourites that they can't fit in one post.

Today I'm introducing you Jennifer Collier. An AMAZING paper artist, who has taken paper sculpture to another level! I'm so in love with her sewing machines!!!

 “Giving new life to things that would otherwise go unloved or thrown away,” is central to her practice.

Books, maps, envelopes, wallpaper or scrap, the paper is transformed into textural forms. Like cloth it is stitched to construct two or three dimensional objects, decorative and functional: lampshades, cameras, tools and furniture. The origin of the paper often provides a starting point for the artwork: the narrative of the books and papers suggesting idea and form.

The most impressive thing I find about her work, is the detail which makes them look so real and they give you the impression that each piece has it's own personality!
