Paper birds by Barbara Cadet

Hello everyone!

This week, I have lots of good news! For this new blog post, I made a photo report of the talented Barbara Cadet, who decorated the window of our store with her fairy fingers. Her dreamlike and colorful universe brightens up our Parisian boulevard, which has been experiencing the rain a little too well in recent days... I am very happy to introduce you to her work today and to reveal 2 days of workshop with her (information at the end of the article).

Like me, Barbara is a graduate of the Duperré school of applied arts in Paris. We didn't meet right away, because we weren't in the same year (I won't tell you who is older ;D). Our paths ended up crossing via “Shangai trio”, a very nice brand for which Barbara worked at the time and which I distributed in my first small boutique.

For several years now, Barbara has devoted herself entirely to her paper creations. She works for many brands and honors orders with bucolic atmospheres, most of the time with brightly colored birds and plants!

I really wanted to order an installation from him specifically in Japanese papers. Until then, I had only seen these birds with plain colored papers. The idea of ​​using patterned paper was very exciting. Barbara was immediately cheerful and the work fell into place quickly. We chose a range of colors that could please us both and a few weeks later the universe was already taking shape...

On the day of installation, the team and I were amazed. Barbara discreetly took each bird and foliage out of her large bag with great modesty. The precision and art of detail of the little pieces of paper cut and assembled enhance the birds and make it all sculpturally marvelous.

Paper is a highly creative material and I hope that this will make you want to embark on creations as elaborate as that of Barbara Cadet...
This is why we invite you to come and participate in the “Paper Birds” workshop on Saturday June 17 and Saturday July 1, 2017! Registrations will soon be open online for the second date...

All of this, suspended in the light of day, when a ray of sunshine comes to liven up this tangy jungle... This work makes me smile every morning when I rediscover it. If you have not yet had the opportunity to discover his work, I invite you to come and discover it at the store.
