When you think of Japanese paper crafts, origami is probably the first art form to come to mind. If you are familiar with this ancient practice, you know that a work of origami art is created by manipulating a single sheet of paper with something other than a series of strategic folds. While this is the most well-known approach to the old art form, there are also adaptations. Kirigami, a variant of origami, offers a bit more creative freedom by allowing artists to cut, pinch and cut their paper creations.

The term kirigami is derived from kiru  (cut) and kami  (paper), which is from the Japanese language.

Liknande traditionella origami, är kirigami skapas från ett enda pappersark och inkorporerar veck. Ibland är dessa veck inkorporeras i den färdiga produkten, som kulminerade i en tredimensionell stycke.

Ofta är dock dessa veck är tillfälliga; när förvridna papperet har skurits, är det ovikta. Därefter nya veck görs och processen upprepas tills arbetet är klart, vilket resulterar i en plan konstverk.

Ursprunget till kirigami

Liksom origami, har kirigami rötter i Kina, där papper uppfanns omkring 105 CE. I den 6: e-talet började den kinesiska använda färgat papper för att skapa dekorativa utskärningar-en företeelse som kallas jiǎnzhǐ . Inledningsvis var dessa pappers skapelser avsedd att hedra gudar och förfäder. Men i den 14: e århundradet, utvecklades jiǎnzhǐ i en verksamhet utövas av kvinnor och barn för fritid.

Undoubtedly inspired by jiǎnzhǐ, the Japanese began to cut the paper into decorative artwork in the 7th century. Like Chinese, they used a special type of paper derived from mulberry plant fibers that had been “soaked in clear river water, thickened and then filtered through a bamboo screen” by hand.

Washi Paper

In Japan, this paper would be called washi paper  -a medium that still inherent both origami and Kirigami practices today.

Today, many artists continue to keep the kirigami craft alive. Whether to adapt the method to suit their own paper cutting interests or faithful to the Japanese art form these contemporary artisans capture timelessness in practice.
