Chinese Paper Cutting | Pi-Ping Savage

Peony 1

We always love to see how our customers use the papers that they purchase.  Recently  Pi-Ping Savage ordered some very special rice paper and I had to know what she was doing.  When Ms. Savage was  12 years old and living in China,  she  would admire the cut-outs on the windows during Chinese New Year.  When she  could not get any the beautiful patterns  she enjoyed  she started creating her own .   Thirty  years after getting married and moving to the United States she is still creating.  She begins by drawing  pictures on white paper and then layers it on top of  Japanese  rice paper.  Using an X-Acto knife she then cuts out the intricate pattern out and mounts them.    Thanks for sharing your work with us!
