Paper Ice - Andy Singleton

A year ago at this time, an icy world was on display at the Oriel Mostyn Gallery in Llandudno, Wales.

Artist/illustrator Andy Singleton was commissioned to create a wintery installation to coincide with an opening at the gallery. He hand cut paper patterns and sculpted paper structures to resemble a beautiful ice cavern.

3-D icicles effectively combined with flowing 2-D paper cuts to create a winter wonderland.

See more of Andy's impressive work on Flickr and his blog, including really beautiful paper birds.

I'm thinking my front porch would look pretty cool dressed up in icicles this holiday season. For the record, I much prefer the paper variety to real ones. Brrr... we've had some hanging off our roof in winters past that look just like these. Gorgeous, but I can easily do without them!

  1. Those icicles are super cool! YES pun intended :)
    Hmm... I wonder how difficult they'd be to recreate??

  2. Those icicles are so pretty. I prefer these paper ones to the real ones too... maybe if I make a bunch no real icicles will show up!

  10. I love this so much I finally got around to making a mini version for my desk - it took 3 A4s and 10 minutes - thanks for the inspiration!

  11. Hasn't been cold enough here in Wisconsin for snow yet this season. Odd, but these icicles would look awesome hanging around my house.
