From the top down, they kind of look like cupcakes, but in reality, they are breasts. Or, at least a likeness of breasts made with quilling paper.

I took a little break from quilling to recover from the Super-Flu that my brother infected us all with when he came over from to visit from London, and when it was over, I was chomping at the bit to get back into the groove. I had a couple of commissions lined up, but was feeling like I wanted to do something completely different and have it in some way benefit a cause. So, I picked up my quilling tool, wound up some paper and made a test breast. It came out pretty much how I’d envisioned it, so I dug out all my flesh-toned paper and started whipping them up.

I tried to make a range of skin tones (at least as much as the paper would allow – there are fairly limited colors that look like skin). And I tried to make breasts and nipples of different sizes and shapes. In person, the piece is visually interesting because there is so much variety.

I ended up making 32 breasts, but once I got them onto the paper, I had to discard three of them to accommodate the ribbon and a five by six layout. Once I dry fit them onto the paper, I glued them all down and took photos.

Now I’m in the process of deciding whether to auction it off and give the proceeds to a breast cancer charity, or donate the piece to a local breast health center. We’ll see what happens.

I hope you like this piece or at least the meaning behind it.
