Paper cutting

Hi all! My new ceramics studio is not quite done yet, so I decided to try some paper cutting this weekend. I did a little youtube crash course and learned how to cut really pretty paper snowflakes. (We’re supposed to get our first snow of the season tonight.) I now know two things:

1) I need sharper scissors. Ha!

2) This was really fun and I definitely want to figure out how to transfer this process to porcelain. These snowflakes would be so beautiful in translucent porcelain, hanging in your window or on your tree!

I think this could be a fun class to host later this winter. Add a little wine into the mix… Fold, Sip, Snip? What do you think? It’s incredibly satisfying to open the snowflakes at the end, fold by fold by fold. I’m not sure what gets me more – the surprise involved, or the final symmetry of the patterns. Symmetry makes me happy inside… ♡

Shiny paper proved too difficult for my phone to photograph nicely today, sorry!
