A Fold Above
Two months ago we asked internationally known origami artist Leonor Rosser to create Two Hands Paperie’s fall window display. Once she said yes, we became increaseingly excited. The results are stunning!
Rosser crafted 11 hand-folded panels to hang in the windows. The panels were assembled from folded squares that came together like a paper quilt. For each square, she used recycled pieces of Cavallini Calendars. “The Cavallini paper is just magnificent for this large scale Origami. The designs are so precious that, when putting the pieces together as a quilt, I did not have to stop and match, or think how I wanted these different designs. It did not matter, it looked great just by putting them randomly,” she explained. She folded 390 pieces to complete the project! Each square took about 1.5 minutes to fold. That means she spend over nine hours just folding the squares! Thankfully, we get to enjoy these fabulous panels for much longer than it took to create them.
Be sure to stop by and see our fantastic window display! We are so grateful to Leonor for her time and effort.
