There’s been a huge papercraft movement in the past decade, with online communities showcasing magnificent artworks to others on the Internet, but none of them look quite like these Bronia Sawyer folded paper pieces.

Bronia Sawyer uses old book and magazine pages to "sculpt" her works and as you can see, her pieces are vivacious and quite animated. It's really remarkable the way Sawyer layers her paper, as the final visual effect is reminiscent of whimsical brush strokes as opposed to folded pieces of paper. Avian creatures are Sawyer’s specialty, but she also takes on the task of crafting underwater sea creatures as well.

In addition, Bronia Sawyer doesn’t just limit herself to paper sculptures either, as she’s even crafted some of these paper projects into wearable jewelery.
