Kate Slater: 3D Paper Birds





An amazing window display of paper birds created by London based freelance illustrator Kate Slater. Yorkshire Sculpture Park's shop window was decorated with forty-four handmade beautiful paper birds, including the barn owl, flying across inside the shop. These 3D birds were made with both flat collage and a combination of paper, cut out and wire, which created the magical scene of suspended birds in the air. 



Now, the designs are also available as gorgeous brooches that are handcrafted from prints of Kate's original collage illustrations, available in her online store here.

These birds are fantastic! I love the collection of vibrantly colored tropical birds with all their motion and commotion.

Best,
