TINY PAPER FLOWERS INSPIRED BY PENCIL SHAVING BY HARUKA MISAWA
Attracted to the shape of the shavings that were formed while sharpening her pencil, designer Haruka Misawa decided to explore how they could be formed into realistic flowers. Printing paper with a color gradation, she tightly wraps it in a pencil like shape so the flowers blossom outward when scraped against the shaver. Each flowers created in this method is completely unique, Misawa's techique making it impossible to replicate the same design of each of her 15-40 mm flowers twice.
