Gail Barlow's paper sculptures

I've recently developed an interest in sliceforms, a type of paper sculpture related to origami.(*) Poking around to find some current practitioners of the art, I came across the work of English artist Gail Barlow.

Barlow has crafted a number of lovely and intricate sliceform sculptures. Check out her site's gallery.

(*) Origami is based on precisely creasing and folding sheets of paper. Sliceforms are based on precisely cutting sheets of paper and interleaving them into three dimensional shapes.
