- the story
Imagine Whorled Piece.
Nashville artist Lori Danelle creates stunning works of art with a personal touch. Using no more than a sheet of acid-free paper and a razor sharp craft knife, she captures the essence of a couple's unique relationship by carefully hand-incising each sheet with the unique contoured folds that pattern each partner's thumbprints. By perforating each piece by hand, that artist is able to magnify and replicate their one-of-a-kind prints in striking detail, giving them the delicacy and intricacy of fine lace.
A beautiful way to capture a couple's romantic bond, this custom-made artwork is finished with both partner's names and a heart cut into the space between their prints (equation) or the names and a special date below the prints (simple). Using her meticulous art making method, Lori crafts each print in a personalized double-portrait that serves as a reminder to embrace the little things that make the people we're close to uniquely wonderful. Handmade in Nashville.

- the maker
Lori was first drawn to paper cutting because of the "insanity of it". Her attraction to this expressive art form is the simplicity. "One thing that I love is that all you need is a piece of paper, an X-acto knife, and a whole lot of patience." Lori invests about ten weeks worth of work on each piece in an effort to replicate her subjects' one-of-a-kind prints in painstaking detail. "When people see my work hanging on their wall, I hope it serves as a reminder to enjoy the little things in their day and to appreciate the uniquely beautiful people in their lives."
