What can you create with a napkin? Folding artist Joan Sallas recreates history through his napkin folding art. His sculptures feature griffins, snakes, turkeys, turtles, horses and much more. Each sculpture design is based on his research about the banqueting tables of Renaissance Europe. A true creative, he craves the discovery of creating new folds.
