Stars and Flowers, by Frederique GueretRudolf Steiner College Press
Vibrant colored figures to light your rooms.Stars, snowflakes, suns, flowers, and other luminous figures can decorate your windows. This is not only a Christmas book but one for all seasons. The vibrant colors of tissue paper, lit by the sun to the very center of the design, will bring joy in many modes. Many of the figures have a three-dimensional effect as well as a suggestion of movement. No rulers or calculations are needed for the easy step-by-step instructions. The color of the tissue paper can be changed by using water or watercolors; the creative possibilities are endless.Frederique Gueret, born in 1949 in Aix-les-Bains, France, worked until 1980 in a Paris advertising company. She then lived in Nuremberg and Stuttgart, Germany where she studied painting and drawing. Since 1995 she has developed a lively method for making folded tissue paper figures, which was first presented in Strahlende Sterne, published in 1999 by Augustus (Munich).
