Nahoko Kojima’s Cloud Leopard- 05.21.13

I couldn’t help but stop as I caught a glimpse of the Cloud Leopard hanging through the open doorway of Craft Central at Clerkenwell Design Week. The stunning installation was cut by hand over five months by Nahoko Kojima of Solo Kojima and actually created right in Clerkenwell! Since it’s creation, the piece was unveiled at the Saatchi Gallery and has travelled extensively with Arte&Arte’s Miniartextil. More photos of this incredible piece on the next page.

Gorgeous video of the project from the artist.

The artist is currently working on her next piece, a life-sized Polar Bear crafted from white Washi paper, which will be revealed in July. Can’t wait to see the new piece! Those in London can even take part in a Satruday paper-cutting workshop at Craft Central in the weeks to come.
