Su Blackwell: Paper Sculptures






Amazing book cut sculptures by Su Blackwell, a London based art director. She creates stunning sculptures cut out of ordinary books where fairytale creatures, butterflies and birds are bring to life. You may not able to read them, but these pieces will leave you in awe at every glimpse.

"I often work within the realm of fairy-tales and folk-lore. I began making a series of book-sculpture, cutting-out images from old books to create three-dimensional diorama’s, and displaying them inside wooden boxes."

Her work left be amazed and curious to know how she create these delicate and intricate artwork out of old books. So, I searched some more and found this video showing her in action. Enjoy!

Remarkable. I've seen some of her work in photographs before but the video really brings it to life. It's just jaw dropping. Would love to own one. I'd like to have one of those giant ones as a piece of sculpture in my living room!
