Folding any metal sounds complicated, but artist Sam Buxton made it look very easy. He makes miniature metal sculptures out of stainless steel. Very thin sheets of steel are used because otherwise it would be more difficult.
The sheets are actually 0.15 mm thick, and the sculptures range from around 95 mm to about 325 mm in height. Buxton calls this project Mikro, and the best part of it is that you can get yourself a flat package with instructions how to fold the sculpture. But you need to be careful so you don’t mess it up because the steel seems to be delicate.
The little man called “Mikro Man” that is a part of every sculpture looks like a robot; that gives this project a cold but modern and new-aged look which I like.
Something that may remind of the Mikro fold-up steel sculptures are these stunning sculptures made of paper layers.
