More than Just Origami

Although paper sculptures have been discussed on the Blue before, you might also want to check out Calvin Nicholls (click on the gallery or portfolio links), who was profiled in the latest issue of Somerset Studio magazine. Here's another guy who creates people sculptures out of paper. There are many other artists out there who make sculptures from paper. Museums sometimes have exhibitions of their work. Check them out in person if you get a chance. Some of the sculptures are unbelievable.

Check out Chris Caccamise--the works look like they're made out of hard plastic, but they're actually just paper.

These are gorgeous! I'd seen some of these before, but never got the name. What a great post! Thank you for this.

Additionally, Richard Sweeney's work, Eric Gjerde's very nice blog, Origami Tessellations and the paper architecture of Shigeru Ban may be of interest.
