Paper petals

My wife often teases me that I would like her better in a bell jar. Hear me out. She’s not bonkers, it’s just that out of the many items we have decorating our house, most of them are “be-jarred.” I love a bell jar. I really do. And as aside to that, I also absolutely adore paper-cutting. So much so that my final major project in university was a collection of hand-cut pop-up depicting bird habitats and flight patterns.

The work of Amanda Hamilton is simply stunning. Intricate botanical creations are housed in bell jars for your 360 degree viewing pleasure. Looking like skeletons of flowers, these white, paper forms are faithful to the original subject, almost believably real until you look closer. Check out some more of Hamilton’s work below, or at her site.
