Paper Magic

Paper sculpture has always fascinated me. Years ago, I endeavored to carve the Leaning Tower of Pisa out of a sheet of bond with a #11 x-acto for a school project. The end product was impressive but excruciatingly delicate and eventually disintegrated over time. Peter Callesen has mastered the art and taken it to new heights with his conceptual sculptures. His framed work is especially exceptional.

Cool as a Cupcake

All cupcakes are yummy but when they’re neatly designed and beautifully packaged they become little works of art. But with a price tag of forty six dollars a dozen, you may want to save these for a special occasion.
