Japanese paper-cut artist Nahoko Kojima is renowned for creating intricate, floating three-dimensional sculptures from a single sheet of paper, which she cuts by hand. Her previous work includes Cloud Leopard – selected by the Crafts Council to be shown at Collect at the Saatchi Gallery in 2012 – and now she’s embarking on a new golden piece, Honey Bee, for the Holburne Museum.
