Book Sculpture Valentines

You might remember the captivating birds that book sculptor and photographer, Bronia Sawyer, created from cut and folded pages. They went on to a gallery in Beverly Hills after being noticed here - not too shabby! Her newest work is a Valentine-themed collection for the windows of Waterstones Booksellers in Solihull, England.

Bronia and I stay in touch across the ocean via Twitter (@BroniaSawyer). She's currently preparing pieces for a gallery in Belgium, the Heart Gallery in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, and the Solihull Art Complex. There's also an upcoming exhibition in Leamington Spa, England with her brother who paints, and she's planning another stop motion film in the style of the short animation on her website. Busy gal!

And yes, Fab Friday is supposed to be just one photo that especially caught my eye during the week, but I simply couldn't decide... each is romantic and alluring.


All Things Paper Facebook links this past week included:

Siba Sihabi's latest work, Istanbul Twilight, is rolled felt instead of rolled wallpaper, but equally stunning.

You might recall the fab paper couture of Lia Griffith. Lia shared templates and instructions for making realistic paper roses.

These sparkly jewel cardboard rings look like fun and what a clever name, Tiphony, ha!

Lastly, the folks at the lovely paper goods shop and blog, Omiyage, kindly featured a roundup of my Valentine tutorials.

Enjoy the weekend!
