╳ Amazing Paper, Amazing Artist

Papercutting is second nature to Thread Count Lab, in fact over the years we’ve cut just about every kind of material you can name with our best friend the lasercutter! However, there is still an intrinsic beauty and craftsmanship beyond compare in the works of artists who cut by hand: Japanese artist Hina Aoyama being one such example.

Self-described as a ”super fine lacy-paper-cutting artist and illustrator" Ms Aoyama, who is now based in France, says of her work: “I don’t follow tradition but I am trying to create a mixture of the traditional and modern styles and to produce my own world through this super fine lacy-paper-cuttings technique."

Hina Aoyama’s work has appeared in numerous museums and galleries around the world and she has won several design prizes including Le Grand Prix International Cannes-Azur in 2006 and 2007; and surprisingly although her work abounds online, there is little autobiographical information to share. I guess we’ll let her work speak for her!
