I have just seen that the papercutting exhibition I wrote about back in the spring (https://thelittlewashhouse.wordpress.com/2014/03/07/falling-into-obscurity-and-some-art/) has been extended and will be shown at the Landesmuseum Zurich (www.nationalmuseum.ch) from January 9th – April 19th 2015, so plenty of time to arrange to see it if you’re interested!!
Meanwhile, one of the local banks is using illuminated papercuts as their Christmas decoration… very attractive and in its own sweet Swiss way, understated! I wasn’t able to avoid the reflection of the glass, sorry!!
Having once or twice attempted Scherenschnitt pictures using nail scissors, I can vouch for the delicacy, patience and skill needed to produce the intricacy of these cutouts. These are breathtaking – in an understated Swiss way 🙂
They are, aren’t they? So classy!
Fantastic examples of magical Scherenschnitt of which I have only marvelled at but never attempted, I know my limits, lol!
Yes, I’ve never managed more than snowflakes or a row of dancing girls myself…!
