Paper Vase

Have you noticed that there is a lot of love out there at the moment for paper art? Upcycled books, intricate paper cuts and origami. I am a huge fan of all of it but alas lack both the time, and the skill, to create any of these for myself.

My most recent discovery are these paper vases available through Perdu Decor. The exterior is made from sheets of paper that have been cut into a design and combined on mass to create the form of the vase. The interior is a metal vase, so I assume they are actually functional, although I’m not sure you would risk the chance of water damage! The densely packed sheets create amazing shadow patterns as the sheets separate and bunch in various spots, producing a striped form that is solid yet fragile in nature.
