Colorful birds

Blossoms

― Kobayashi Issa (1763–1828)

One can almost hear the birds singing in Will and Caro's vivid 3D blend of traditional origami birds and brightly painted cherry blossoms. The Australian artist duo individually hand-folds each bird, using the highest quality Chiyagami paper sourced from across the globe. Delicate and precise, the centuries-old art of origami is steeped in romantic imagery and tradition. Origami lovers are sometimes challenged with how to display it; here's a brilliant solution. Bursting with the soul of spring, this charming artwork brings a welcome reminder of sun and warmth during the dark depths of winter. Because these pieces are handmade, each is unique. Handmade in Melbourne.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Born in Australia and Finland, respectively, Carolyn Wong and William Du both grew up in creative families. Carolyn’s father was in the fashion and tailoring industry. As a little girl she paraded in her father’s beautiful creations. William developed his creative skills drawing alongside his brothers, all self-taught. Will and Caro create stunning art pieces with a story to tell, primarily working with traditional Japanese paper. They love its simplicity, purity, and delicacy, and its contrast with our era’s technology. Carolyn has a fascination with geometry balanced against subtle textures and intricate patterns, while William is intrigued with movement and disorder. Collaborating in their Melbourne studio, they create designs that evoke calm, yet also tantalize the senses.
