Using books that people have thrown away, Malaysia-born, Tennessee-based artist Daniel Lai creates art with several mediums in varied styles and subject matter.
Each of his book sculptures are made with the paper folded onto itself to create a blossom effect and is accompanied by a clay figure of a man. Each of the intricately folded paper sculptures look somewhat like a large flower. The figurine is creatively displayed to convey a thought that enhances the pages of the book.
If interested, you can purchase one of his sculptures at the Daniel Lai Kenjio Etsy store.

Which one of Daniel Lai’s art pieces is your favorite. I saved the one I like the most for last (as usual). It reminds me how much I love to sew and the peace it gives me when I’m sewing.
