Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Kirigami

Most have heard of Oragami, but have you heard of Kirigami?


The major difference between the two is that, in origami, you fold paper, whereas in kirigami, you fold and cut paper.


Typically, kirigami starts with a folded base, which is then cut;


cuts are then opened and flattened to make the finished kirigami.


A difference between kirigami and the art of “pop-up” is that kirigami is made out of a single piece of paper that has been cut into a design.


Kirigami are usually symmetrical, such as pentagrams and snowflakes.


It is an art that takes a true plan, a steady hand, and a piece of paper.


Not to mention … imagination.
