Anna-Wili Highfield

Though Anna-Wili Highfield’s paper animal figures have received praise from the design community, and have been exhibited worldwide, her work is just too beautiful and timeless to not revisit.

Based in Australia, Highfield worked for two years as a scenic artist for the Sydney Opera House. From the humblest of materials, she sculpts taxidermy-style animals, typically in paper, which she paints and then sews to create the form. She also makes larger scale, copper pipe-based sculpture.

The lightness and subtlety of Highfield’s work is remarkable, while the natural animal postures suggest life in every way.
