Adorable Origami Scenes Built With Everyday Objects By Wenche Lise Fossland
The plane is the most fun of paperfolds, since you can actually throw it at people. Wenche Lise Fossland is a more benign kind of person, and her origami works are only featured in cute scenes. She combines the Japanese art of folding paper with regular, everyday objects to create miniature scenes. So a paper elephant who would otherwise just stand there taunting you with immaculate fold lines starts eating leaves. A paper owl sits on a branch of a live tree. It is quaint, beautiful and inventive, especially considering Wenche Lise’s use of everyday materials.
Wenche Lise, who comes from Norway, was inspired by an origami lamp she saw on her holiday trip to France. She didn’t stop folding when she returned home – in fact, she became even more voracious in her folding appetites. And with internet being what it is, she has a myriad origami designs just a click away. However, she likes to give the pieces a personal touch by adding little scenes made from everyday objects. “I even look at the vegetables in the grocery store in a different way now,” she said to Instagram Blog. “A fennel can be an exotic island and the broccoli has great potential to be tree material in my origami world.”
