Noriko Ambe and paper sculptures

by • 15 April 2012 • No categoryComments (1)

Noriko Ambe is a Japanese sculpture artist, who creates absolutely amazing compositions in paper. Precision-cut paper sheets are transformed into sculptures inspired by nature. Some of them are combined with everyday objects, which makes a unique composition. Noriko also cuts artist’s catalogs and books. She explains her method on her website: “I individually cut single sheets of paper by free-hand and stack them together.”
