trees made of paper.

Usually, it's the other way around.

Grove - Revolving Trees
Edition of 12 + 1 Prototype

Revolving paper trees planted on a non revolving paper and wood console Table - see these in motion at the Raw-Edges Design Studio site.

Skinny Laminx makes paper cut outs and screen prints... her tea towels are wanted (by me). Particularly the spoons.

Yuken Teruya cuts paper trees out of everyday objects and trash. There are some great and surprising photos on her website.

Here she's cut into book pages. I tend to like art that involves books, like strategically painting over some words on a page of an old book so that the words read differently than intended, but then I also feel a little sad and sorry for the book. Or maybe, for the writer.

Just in case you wanted to make your own paper trees... you can! (I love the Internet!) There's a tutorial online at A Little Hut.
