Dans la Lune by Kirsten Hassenfeld

New York artist Kirsten Hassenfeld's elaborate paper sculptures draw on the artist's love of ornamentation and find power through her painstaking craftsmanship. The product of hundreds of hours of cutting, folding, rolling and coiling, her works have taken the form of jewels and luxury goods, ornaments and vases, and trees and flowers.

Hassenfeld's largest and most ambitious installation to date, "Dans la Lune" (2007) , was commissioned by and recently exhibited at Rice Gallery, Rice University, Houston, TX.
