Gasp! Gorgeous, delicate, GIGANTIC flowers… made entirely of paper! PAPER. This is the stunning work of San Francisco based architect/artist Tiffanie Turner… those happen to be her dress-covered legs in the first photo of the post, just to give you a sense of scale. Yep, these botanical beauties all range between 23″ to 36″ in diameter… a light pink dahlia that is three feet across? Yes. I am going to need that. All of these insanely amazing flowers are part of a show called “Heads” that is currently showing at Rare Device in San Francisco. The show is up until May 28th, so take a break from working in your real garden and go visit this ridiculously gorgeous paper garden… no weeding necessary! [Opening reception: May 9th from 6 - 8pm]

{ps. Each of these crazy paper blooms can take Tiffanie anywhere between 35 – 80 hours to complete… gasp! Again.}

*Top-most photo taken by Sarah Deragon, all other images were shot by Tiffanie.

    i know right?! i’d love to pop into the show and see them all together… then i would lie there in the middle of all of them and pretend i’m in a giant, magical meadow ; )

    It’s a real delight looking at them beauties. They look real but still had that whimsical value about it. I admire the hardwork too!

    I’ve admired her work for a long time and I’ve loved watching her receive the recognition that she deserves.

    Yay!

    I have been wanting to try and try to make paper flowers although I don’t think I will be making them on this scale, this has definitely inspired me. So gorgeous!

    Wow! I make paper flowers from time to time, so I can apreciate the work that goes into them. Those are so gorgeous and 10 times the scale of the ones I make. Beautiful, just beautiful. Amazing!!!
