Some artists don’t need much to get by: a piece of paper, perhaps, and a pair of scissors. Danish paper artist, Marianne Eriksen-Scott Hansen, has for years been turning paper into magic. It’s not as simply as it might seem.
Her paper flowers are made by using 50 to 60 pieces of papers each, layered one on top of the other, then delicately cut to form petals and stems.
Graduating from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1995,
Eriksen-Scott Hansen has since designed for brands like Levi Strauss and Georg Jensen. It’s easy to see why.
Other brands were quick to jump on board. In addition to her work with industrial products, she makes spectacular hand cut accessories that are truly “paper coutore”. These were adorned by Björk and Steven Tyler among others.
