Crafted Crops.

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

"Just think," I found myself saying to my roommate Jamie last night, "In five short months, it'll be summer, and we'll have the windows open, and it'll be so hot we won't know what to do with ourselves."

As it happens, it's six degrees right now in New York City, the streets are blanketed in snow, and our windows are glazed in a thick layer of frost. The world outside is cold and colorless - which is why this handmade paper orchard, comprised of thousands of pieces of paper produce, caught my attention.


I'm a little late to the game (the orchard was built in 2011 by Gloss Creative at Melbourne's GPO); still, this morning, I can't imagine a more welcome sight.

I personally want the months to slow down so I can enjoy my summer here in Australia :) he he he
If we never had the cold we'd never enjoy the warmth so much!
