Beauties Wood - Helen Musselwhite

The Beauties Wood papercut terrarium by Helen Musselwhite is incredible. I especially like that the images are in shades of black, white and grey and not colors. It gives the piece a muted connection and stillness that pulls it apart from the living organisms the piece is built from.

  1. Amazing! I have seen Helen's papercuts before but not in terrariums - just beautiful.

  2. oh my gosh, these are the definition of the word "exquisite" ... one almost feels as if the covers were lifted, the forms would blow away like mere wisps of cloud.
