Things We Love: Kusudamas by Lea Gray Design

From the July 19, 2012 edition

Gorg! Local artist Lea Gray crafts these origami balls called kusudamas. This mini version sits on my work desk, giving me a lovely little aesthetic pep talk each day. Check out Gray’s website ( to see all the sizes and colors available. She also sells larger kusudama lamps that hang from the ceiling. The way they geometrically throw light on the wall when illuminated makes me swoon.
