Amazing Art: Eric Joisel Turning Paper Into Dollars

When talking of art and paper in the same sentence one immediately thinks of sketching or painting. If the word origami is also introduced then the topic may become uninspiring as a pastime to keep children occupied.Not in the hands of Eric Joisel. He has turned this into an exciting art form and his pieces now command thousands of dollars.
Origami is taken from two Japanese words that, as Eric Joisel explains on his website, simply means fold and paper. That is: no cuts no glue.
Eric has spent hundreds of hours developing his sculptures and techniques. In fact when asked how long a piece takes to create his answer is “35 years.”
