This paper installation of a city complete with a railway and electric lights, is by Wataru Itou, an art student in Tokyo.  It was constructed over four years and exhibited at the Castle On The Ocean papercraft exhibition.  Now that’s what I call papercraft…

I’ve just discovered the excellent papercuts of Megan Brain, a graduate of the Academy of Art in San Francisco.  She started making paper sculptures during her studies at Chouinard School Of Art in Pasadena, and she works primarily with paper, ‘cartoon colour’, cell vinyl, acrylic paint and strong glue.  Love these – inspiring stuff 🙂

Sandhi Schimmel Gold creates amazingly detailed mosaic art from tiny pieces of discarded menu items, junk mail postcards, business cards, old greeting cards, cruise itineraries, gallery openings…

In her own words – “It is my mission to create fine art from a variety of materials and messages. I upcycle the materials advertisers use to bombard society with their version of beauty – in images and verbiage.  I believe we are an aggregate of tiny bits: who we are and where we’ve been – or who we want or pretend to be. The tesserae, the “tiles” I create represent those bits in color and texture and meaning”.

Three young ladies who have made a name for themselves making beautifully crafted jewellery from recycled paper.

Francesca of Frucci Design has created a range of elegant jewellery based around folded paper.  A biochemist by profession, Francesca describes herself as 50% scientist and 50% artist – but her dream is to create her jewellery full time.

She uses paper from a variety of sources – recycled, vintage, handmade, but also some new and from old maps, magazines, catalogs, newsletters, coupons, and her favourite – shopping bags.  Her technique, she says, is a mixture of old and new, and she likes to mix and match different and unrelated approaches in her pieces.

See more at her Etsy shop, and her blog.

Holly Ann Mitchell of Newspaper Jewellery made her first piece as a University project for which the brief was to create a piece of jewellery without using any traditional materials.  She chose to work with newspaper, as the bright colours and patterns of the Sunday comics appealed to her.  She has been making paper jewellery ever since, winning several awards and having her work featured in a number of publications.

Liz Hamman is a  mixed media artist from Macclesfield near Manchester in the UK.   She combines books, sculpture and textile/fibre art in her work, which is inspired by geometry, growth patterns in nature and repetitive structures and processes. Using only old books and maps that have been used, never new ones, she says –

“I like to produce work that is small and tactile which is why much of my work is wearable, in the form of jewellery.  Paper may not seem like the obvious choice as a material for jewellery due to its fragile and ephemeral nature.  I am interested in the idea that these qualities reflect the nature of the human form itself and also question the nature of ‘value’ in the society we live in.”
