Today the Department of Phenomenal Papercraft is enjoying the work of botanical artist Kate Kato, who uses found and recycled paper to create insect, plant, and fungi specimens and enchanting natural dioramas.

“A buzzing hive of bees makes a home in a matchbox, vintage books are overgrown with paper fungi and colorful wildflowers, and a shadow box is filled with butterflies and beetles. Rather than striving for exact scientific replication, Kato allows the original material to show through, lending a spirit of handcrafted whimsy to her work.”
