These Valerie Buess paper sculptures are made to resemble sea urchins, coral and other underwater creatures and botany. Buess's sculptures are made in a variety of forms, shapes, sizes and colors, displaying a great amount of detail and craftsmanship.

The amazing creations are constructed out of tightly rolled paper pieces that resemble organic matter. These small pieces are connected together, often taking on the form of spikes, petals or leaf-like shapes.

These shapes give the artist's sculpture volume with intricately bound forms that showcase a tremendous amount of texture. This art collection is both visually interesting and extremely tactile. The artist uses a simple and common material and makes it extraordinary, infusing plain paper with loads of creativity and imagination. These Valerie Buess paper sculptures are awe-inspiring and enlighten a viewers curiosity.
