Incredibly Detailed Flower Blossoms Made of Paper

Tiffanie Turner is a San Francisco-based architect and designer who crafts incredibly realistic flower blossoms, using just a bunch of paper. By merging hundreds of colourful creme paper layers, she replicates a natural beauty in a way that after all it’s really hard to distinguish whether her works are real flowers or it’s just a masterfully made replica.

I mean, the photos of her works are so realistic that even looking at them very closely and knowing the fact that they are made just of paper, it’s hard to believe it. However, this applies only for the photos, and this is not because the photos of her works are kind of a bad quality or photoshoped. The reason is a size of Tiffanie’s work. The paper flowers are enormous, ranging from 2 to 3 feet in diameter and can take anywhere from 35 to 80 hours to complete.

Actually, it’s a first time I see such a detailed flower blossoms made of paper and, personally, would love to see them live. Therefore,  if you are based in San Francisco,  don’t miss a great opportunity to see these flowers on exhibit at Rare Device, a storefront and gallery located in San Francisco. Tiffanie’ works will be on display from now through May 28, 2014.
