Original Paper Art - Longevity Peach

Original Paper Art - Longevity Peach


The peach is a symbol of longevity in China and is traditionally part of decorations for elders for their birthdays.

Handmade with German and Italian crepe paper, spun cotton, paper clay and wire. The peach body was hand sculpted and air-dried, covered in two layers of Italian crepe paper, then coloured and sprayed with a variety of archival Japanese alcohol inks to get that perfect tree-ripened blush. Leaves and branches are fully wired to achieve a sculptural effect.

Inspired by the famously mouthwatering Honey Peach from the Wuxi region of China.

As with any fine art, please avoid direct sunlight to preserve color.

Peach is approximately 3.5 inches in diameter. Overall sculpture is 10 inches in length.
