Peter Callesen is a sculptor who works in paper. Most of his work seems to be made from single sheets of A4 paper, 80gsm – the sort of paper you probably have lying around for your printer.
That makes it pretty easy to have a go at doing some of these, but I’m guessing you won’t get anywhere close to the results he gets. The pics are quite amazing – I especially love the snow scenes shown at the Korean site listed below…
- Official Site
- Korean Site with Lots More Pictures – the text is in Korean, but there’s lots of good pics of his work.
- Boing Boing Story that linked to the above sites.
- doART Profile – yet more pictures.
Fancy having a go? All you should need is a good sharp craft knife, and some paper. Many of the sculptures are glued, so some decent paper glue would probably help. Unfortunately, I think Peter’s talent is a bit harder to come by.
