Lizzie Thomas Wood + Paper- 04.14.09

lizzie1.jpg It’s somehow becoming paper art week here at NOTCOT ~ after the many incredible artists showing at Papershapers, i just keep finding MORE! Late night obsessing over the 3D works of young British artist & maker: Lizzie Thomas!

Her 3D micro-paper-sculptures unfold like pocket sized mythical worlds and forests tucked away in little hinged wooden boxes. One can only imagine the beautiful shadows they would cast on a wall if a candle was carefully lit beside them (perhaps this is where the paper aspect may not work as well?). You must check out more of the pieces on the next page, as well as an adorable portrait of the artist herself!





7 Notes

Truly elegant design. Was these hand cut or dye cut?

Love your creations and that it is tucked in a box.

So awesome! I love the ingeniuty and the organic feel.

wonderful!… and great idea to place it on that wooden box like that to display it. The whole thing is awesome!. My favorite from the last picture is the one on the bottom left corner.

This is gorgeous, I’m a sucker for paper crafting. Really lovely.

I just started following you on twitter - and this is the first post I saw and it looks quite similar to Australian artist Emma Van Leest - see her site: http://emmavanleest.com/
