Paper Flower Milagro Candle by Momoca - #3
Japan-born artist Momoca studied fine art in California, where she explored millinery, fashion design, painting, ceramics, photography and graphic design. Momoca’s material of choice today is paper, which she discovered when Alice Waters, approached her to help with the Edible Schoolyard Project Fundraising Dinner. The idea of using paper came out of convenience, but Momoca's background in hat and cloth pattern making, as well as the Origami all Japanese children learn, came together in extraordinary floral creations. Despite its apparent restrictions and simplicity, Momoca finds paper it to be an incredibly versatile material, possessing an internal delicate, yet flexible quality.
We are transported by her magical paper creations, and hope you are too.
Measures 16" tall in a Oaxaca metal candle stand.
