I have been working with paper for 15 years and am always interested in how artists use paper in different ways to express themselves and how forms are created.

I recently came across Anna-Wili Highfield a Sydney based artist currently making sculptures of animals from copper pipe and from torn paper.  The paper sculptures are created from archival cotton paper, that is torn then sewn together, to create the figure of an animal.
