matt shlian for ghostly

by Grace Bonney

I’m a big, big fan of Matt Shlian’s work. An MFA graduate from Cranbrook, Matt is both a teacher and creator of some pretty spectacular paper art. He recently finished a project with Ghostly that is just stunning. He did a series of raised tessellation pieces that look so pretty I think I’d be too scared to touch them for fear of damaging the beautiful details. Matt has several of these tessellation pieces for sale at Ghostly right now ($125–$200 each), so if you’re looking for some visual inspiration (or new artwork for your home), click here to check out the full series. xo, grace
