Hand-crafted by Japanese artist Hasegawa Yoshio, these stunningly intricate cans have been made entirely from wireframe and paper! The beautiful sculptures recreate the impression of twisted and discarded soda cans - which even look as if they’ve been plucked from a cool recycling promotion (although perhaps unintentionally). And while delicate to the eye, the pliable cans can be crumpled and readily re-formed into a different object.

Made using only paper, and coated with acrylic, the cans each seem incredibly realistic. But instead of being made from the more robust aluminium, the paper is completely malleable and can be molded into various shapes. But that is only by the hands of this extraordinary artist!
