This pin is intricate, charming and well-made. It's full of personality! It's impressively small for having been hand-folded and so will make an excellent lapel-sized pin. The lacquer gives it a lovely aged appearance too. Great!
i'm a digital illustrator/animator/designer by day and turn to more analogue creative pursuits in my spare time.
all of the new paper stocks i use are made with a high percentage of recycled content. i also like to experiment with what i find in second-hand stores and flea markets. no books are harmed in my process - i only use books that can no longer be used as books.
pieces are priced according to:
1. size of the model: the smaller something is the more difficult it is to fold
2. cost of the paper varies greatly - bronzed paper is $20 a sheet!
3. cost of the findings: i use a mixture of precious and base metal findings
this is why the same model may sell for a variety of different prices.
all items are handcrafted using high quality materials and made to order however, slight imperfections may occur from time to time. that's what makes it unique!
