Amazing Paper Cuts

The work of Danish artist Peter Callesen inspired me to make my own little paper sculptures. I was at a standstill with my installation for my thesis show in my last year of college and when I saw his tower of babel sculpture I knew I wanted to make a little paper village. And I've been making paper houses ever since.
See them at my website.

Tall Tower of Babel, 2005

Here are some other enchanting works by him both big and small.

It's hard to believe that this is made of paper!

Elsita Mora is another very talented artist who makes paper cuts but that's not all. She also makes dolls and porcelain sculptures, jewelry and illustrations.

El Bosque de la Mente

Frida Kahlo Necklace, inspired by the self portraits of Frida Kahlo.
