San Francisco-based architect Tiffanie Turner (previously) hand-crafts large flowers out of delicate pieces of crepe paper.
“The exploration of scale plays heavily into everything I do, and the organized chaos and rhythms in nature make the heads of flowers an excellent case study for me,” she explains.

The paper flowers are huge, ranging from 2 to 3 feet in diameter (from 30 to 60 cm), and can take anywhere from 35 to 80 hours to complete.

During a recent residency at the de Young Museum in San Francisco Tiffanie enlisted over 4,000 visitors to collectively compose and then destroy a Ranunculus sculpture while stationed at the museum during the month of May.

Many of the works she created while in residence will head to the Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, Massachusetts for an exhibition opening August 9th and running through September 18th, 2016.
