Red Riding Hood - Laser-Cut by Paper Panda
- Unit Price
This is a gorgeous laser-cut paper cut by Paper Panda.
This amazing piece is perfectly laser-cut in black paper and suspended over vintage book pages from a reclaimed book of Grimms' Fairy Tales. The pages have aged and have a beautiful patina. The book is very old, not in a readable condition and has been given a new lease of life within the papercuts. Each lasercut is suspended over different pages, making each unique (so may vary from the images shown here).
Supplied box-framed in a handmade beechwood box frame. The frame has an outer size of approximately 48.5cm (w) by 38.5cm (h). Please note that there is damage to frame - a small nick on the top and on the left hand side of frame.
About Paper Panda
Paper Panda started in 2010 with Louise Firchau making typographical lyrical papercuts from recycled paper.
Since then PP has grown significantly and now has three very distinct styles and a multitude of merchandise so that everyone can have a piece of the original bear.
The Bird & Bunny and folk series of papercuts have been hand drawn and hand cut by Louise. They are inspired by Quarwood, where the Panda family lived in a little cottage in the Cotswolds surrounded by animals and woodland life.
The Storybook series (and other gothic darkness) is a cute collaboration between Mr & Mrs Panda. Louise tells Ryan what to draw with a waggy, pointy finger over his shoulder and only when he gets it perfectly right she cuts it out of paper. It's a good bit of teamwork.
The typographical pieces are created using digital software. Louise studied typography at university and it became an obsession. "There is nothing more satisfying than creating a piece of graphic art using amazing fonts and hand cutting it so perfectly that no matter what the size it looks like it's been printed."
