Pieces of Art

Nine-Part Herbal Fantasy

Sometimes paper sculpture takes a long time.  Lots of layers, lots of pieces, not very many finished things to show in between times.

So I thought I'd offer a glimpse of a work-in-progress.  This is part of the "Dark Cycle" of my new piece Nine-Part Herbal Fantasy.

Here's the original color build for the design.

Assorted pieces in a box, some cut, some not.

This is the center part, which I call the "root ball."

Not much more to say.  Hope you enjoyed the glimpse!

  1. Very cool, Jan. The root ball looks a little like a cabbage cut in half. Really impressive art you made from it.

  2. Thanks! I can hardly wait to see how it looks when it's finished.
