Paper Sculptures Replicate Pottery
Siba Sahabi, a Holland based German Iranian designer, is a master illusionist, transforming strips of paper into stunning little vases. Her latest collection, Kerameikos, takes inspiration from an ancient potter's quarter in Athens of the same name. She replicated the textured look of pottery by meticulously cutting and folding paper into long strips, then coiling them into circles like a snake. Each vase took an average of three days. she writes on her website, "My aim is to translate culture into objects; I want to build a bridge between the orient and the occident."
