by Emiko Yamamoto
There are many types of paper, different in colour, grain, thickness and consistency. The Japanese have been able to make the best of it thanks to the art of origami and other disciplines such as kirigami, from kiru ("cut") and kami ("paper"): while origami does not involve the use of scissors, cutters and glue, kirigami also makes use of these tools, as well as traditional folding techniques, to create colorful three-dimensional creations that appear to have
of its own life.
This liveliness, together with their pure and rigorous lines, makes the subjects recreated with this technique extraordinarily fascinating.
This is the case of these 43 flowers to carve with paper, which include models suitable for beginners and others for more expert hands. In these delicate works by a famous author you can feel the breath of nature and perceive all the beauty of even the simplest wildflower.
