It is a technique that works with thin strips of paper

It is a technique that works with thin strips of paper giving cylindrical shapes, also known as filigree paper.It tells the story that were already performed by French and Italian nuns in the 16th and 17th centuries.

The nuns decorated reliquaries and sacred engravings, adding golden touches and much ornamentation. The works with the paper strips really look like gold and silver.

The religious connection with the quilling was maintained when the art was diffused in England with the development of the paper.

The poorer churches produced reliquaries, to which were added engravings of the saints concerning the relic in the work, fully adorned with quilling .

See some images of the collection “Trèzor de Ferveur” – French which has the most beautiful works of the 18th century.

In the past this work was done as leisure with the intention of making decorative objects such as panels and coats. Later the work was done in tea cans, wooden boxes, screens, cabinets, frames, etc.

Beautiful boxes were made at that time only to receive the works in quilling .

In 1875 an attempt was made to revitalize the quilling by Wm. Bemrose. A kit called ‘Mosaicon’ was produced along with a manual. Another reference was discovered in a book entitled “Floral Mosaic”.

Many museums in England and the United States have exhibited quilling works done in past centuries.

Filigree artists on paper exhibit and have their works in art galleries in the United States, England, Korea and Russia.
