Believe it or not, these marvelously intricate and vibrant pieces of art are made from nothing but curled-up pieces of paper. They are made by Sydney, Australia-based artist Gunjan Aylawadi, who uses a unique technique for cutting and curling paper to create intricate sculptures that look like woven textiles despite consisting of nothing but paper. Aylawadi uses her paper cutting and curling methods to add layers of texture and sculptural form to hand-drawn ideas.

The process is long, intricate as well as expensive because it requires a very particular kind of paper. One piece called 'Against the Wind' is made from strips of paper hand-cut from old music books before being individually hand-rolled and assembled.

“What I enjoy most about making my work is the experience people have when they look at it,” Gunjan Aylawadi says. “They stop for a moment to have a closer look and the moment turns into long minutes of being fascinated by the beauty a simple medium like paper can add to the work in front of their eyes."
