Today I’m doing another featured artist post! Check out Irving Harper!

Harper is a well known industrial designer who’s career spanned from the 1930s to 1983. You’ve probably encountered a lot of his designs without even knowing it, but I’m not here to share his career designs with you, I’m here to share his paper sculptures!

After his retirement, Harper took to creating paper sculptures as a hobby to keep himself occupied. He has now (at 96 years old!) created around 300 of these sculptures, which are all on display in his own home.

Take a look at a few of them!

The owl is his last completed work, and is by far my favorite! You can see a bit more as well as acquire additional information in this article.
