Quilling, the Art of Paper Filigree by Lisa Nillson

Posted by admin | April 25, 2012 0

Quilling was first practiced by Renaissance nuns and monks who are said to have made artistic use of the gilded edges of worn out bibles, and later by 18th century ladies who made artistic use of lots of free time. The common thread we can see among Lisa artworks is the attraction to the intricate, multifaceted, complex, detailed and time consuming.

The following quilling artworks are made with Japanese mulberry paper and the gilded edges of old books. Incredible results!
