Simple Pleasures

Cool water on a hot and sunny afternoon. Happy first day of summer.

Atelier: Noriko Ambe

To me, these delicately beautiful sculptures by artist Noriko Ambe resemble the extraordinary forms carved into rock by wind and water. In fact, they're made of paper — each individually cut free-hand and then stacked together. Noriko describes these pieces from her Linear-Actions Cutting Project as her life work — begun in 1999, they are continually being added to through the years. For Noriko, they embody relationships among humans, time and nature. View more on her site here.

Guest Post

I'm doing a guest post today for lovely Victoria of sfgirlbybay while she's away on holiday in Paris — hope you'll visit me there. I'll be sharing the beautiful home of French designer Dominique Kieffer — and you'll definitely want to see this!
