Paper Pups exhibit

Today I installed my exhibit of Paper Pups in Bexley Public Library, Bexley OH. This was the very first time even for me to be able to see all the pups I created in one place at one time. I am happy about the way it looks. This exhibit runs for a month from 8/1 to 8/31. I am scheduled to do a paper pups workshop in the library for grade school children in December (date TBA). Below are a few photos of the exhibit.

Now this exhibit has been extended to the end of September October.



A new book of paper animal sculptures out!

I have recently published a book of paper animal sculptures. Each of these animals was designed to be constructed, without the use of glue or adhesive tape, out of one continuous sheet of paper (except for the large ones like elephants and alligator, they simply didn't fit in single pages and I had to design them in sections). You copy the template on a sheet of card stock paper (there are many colors and textures available at craft stores), score the folding lines, cut the templates out and turn them into 3-D sculptures. Kirigami is a combination of 2 Japanese words "kiri" (cutting) and "kami" (paper). My designs are a kind of hybrid kirigami that involves a lot of origami techniques.
The whimsical limericks on the photograph pages were written by Erik Johnson.
The book is available through Amazon, Barnes And Noble and through the website of my publisher Lark Books.
