Tissue Paper Skull

Polly submitted this beautiful skull. "The skull is made from fine tissue paper that has been cast from a positive skull mould."

I love the delicate fragility to it. I know that working with tissue paper can be very challenging. If not dried properly, it can collapse when the mold is removed. This also speaks to the delicate nature of life. This is a beautiful piece and makes me want to experiment with delicate materials to make stable structures. Thanks for sharing this Polly. For more of Polly's work, visit her Website and Flickr.
