There are plenty of origami birds out there, but what makes the designs of Joyanne Horscroft and Julie Wilkinson so different is the distinct sculptural aspect of their papercraft birds. Rather than just folding sheets of paper into bird shapes, the team, known collectively as The Makerie, use scissors, glue and folding techniques to create incredibly detailed works of art complete with cascading feathers and detailed wings.

Their portfolio is filled with stunning bird creations, including owls and parrots, and other designs like telephones, record machines and buildings. While it's all worth a good long glance, the birds certainly stand out from the crowd.
