Washi sculpture

Kyoko Okubo created these delicate and very intricate washi sculptures. The word Washi comes from wa meaning Japanese and shi meaning paper. Traditionally this paper is made using the bark from either the gampi tree, mitsumata shrub or the papery mulberry. Kyoko’s work is really breathtaking.

    Really, really beautiful — the twig antlers add such a lovely natural element.
