  • May 29, 2013 •• Published: May 29, 2013 Early one morning, I found threee empty toilet roll cardboards waiting for their departure to recycling. Why the collection?

Experimenting with folding, creasing and twisting. The pieces are afterwards coated with shellac and different pigments.

  • October 12, 2012 Published: Oct 12, 2012  Paper is potential, curiosity, beauty. The texture, aroma, colour can evoke a mood, a memory, give an impression. Jeff Nishinaka demonstrates this through his 3D pieces. “We could choose any type of medium, like matchsticks, nails and clay. I chose paper and made a fish sculpture – it was an ‘ah-ha!’ moment for me. After that I quickly developed a feel for working with paper. I began experimenting with different papers, finding ways to shape, bend, and round edges on it.” Jeff Nishinaka.   Paper to Jeff is a living, breathing thing that has a life of its own. You can see more of his amazing work on his website.         See more of Jeffs work here popgive.com/2010/07/paper-sculpture here udayfun.blogspot.ie/2010/07/paper-sculpture & here designswan.com/archives/amazing-3d-paper-sculpture-by-jeff-nishinaka

  • December 7, 2009 There was a time when an invitation was an invitation occasionally with a rsvp card. Today a Wedding invitation may include an itinerary, accommodation details, a map and an assortment of other details. The invitation in various parts The invitation Like this ? Though the invitation included more than an invitation it is necessary to insure that each part was distinct form the other parts while retaining over all uniformity.
