Via Colossal, I saw these beautiful paper sculptures by Japanese designer Haruka Misawa. You can read about the idea behind it here, but essentially she noticed when sharpening pencils that the shavings resembled flowers and decided to try and reconstruct this using paper.

She created tightly wrapped coloured paper “pencils”, which she then sharpened to create these flowers. I think they’re so beautiful. Especially as someone that loves both flowers AND pencils sharpening (seriously, I have sharpenings in pretty much every pencil picture I’ve ever taken). What do you think?
