Patrick Cabral Explores The Animal Form Through Delicate Layered Papercuts

Patrick Cabral Explores The Animal Form Through Delicate Layered Papercuts - Lion

Patrick Cabral is a multi-disciplinary designer based in the Manila, Philippines, whose latest works are comprised of various animals created from multiple layers of paper. Each are delicately cut with unique patterns, accentuating the finer details such as the fur, to explore the natural characteristics of the animal form. This has been an ongoing series on his Instagram account where he states, "I want to provide a contrast of soft materials to a predator." He has since then added to his series with more endangered species like the lion featured above, and hopes to eventually show how fragile some species are and how close they are to extinction.

Artist Creates Delicate and Ethereal Paper Fairy Lighthouses

Delicate and Ethereal Paper Fairy Lighthouses by Joanna Karaseva

Russian designer Joanna Karaseva designs these wonderfully charming miniaturized paper houses, lighthouses in particular, that feel as if they are plucked from the secret world of fairies. At first glance you may think that these houses are made using the Papier-mâché technique, however she uses a special, and secret, technique specific to this type of modeling. Each fairy house is carefully handcrafted with the use of only French Canson paper, PVA glue, LEDs, batteries and wires. The rigidity and strength of the paper architecture is achieved from a unique technology of combining ribs and textures. The act of bending and folding the curvature into the paper allows for deeper texturing and a relief effect. The individual elements, such as windows and lanterns are made of colored transparent tracing paper. Even finer details placed in the paper cobblestones and mosaic tiled footpath are absolutely breathtaking.

paper-flower-04

These colorful and delicate paper flowers by Japanese designer Haruka Misawa were inspired by the winding spirals of pencil shavings. They are created using layers and layers of paper with color gradations, tightly rolled into cylindrical scrolls, which are then shaved using a pencil sharpener. The ever shifting forms are only about 15mm-40mm in diameter, but a closer look reveals the thinly sliced, multi-layered paper. They can be displayed on your desk or as a wall decoration and you can create different variations depending on how thick it's sharpened.

Abe uses the same Japanese Ise-katagami cutting tools but on black paper, in addition to an X-Acto knife, a cutting mat, and—most importantly—incredible patience. The resulting hand-cut creations depict woodland animals and mystical forests that explore “everyday moments and thoughts.”
