Kathy Ruttenberg Sculpture

 

Explore the ethereal sculptures of Kathy Ruttenberg… they are utterly beautiful! I love the combination of woodland and human features together, reminiscent of old fairytales and folk lore.

Kyoko Okubo: Narrative Paper Sculptures

 

Take a look at the charming work of Kyoko Okubo‘s Paper Sculptures… these little beauties are immaculately constructed from washi tape, and feature self portraits and reflective imagery. I found a fascinating artical here for those who would like to find out a little more!

Feeling Foxy

As many friends and regular readers of my blog can tell you, I have a great fondness of foxes. Every time I stumble across fox-related crafts I make a mental note to return to them, but when it comes to it I can rarely find my way! So I’ve started making a list of fox crafts on a few pages of my blog, partly for my own records and partly to share some of my favourite foxy things. Enjoy and please let me know of any of your own fox finds!

Mister Finch

I have utterly fallen in love with the world of Mister Finch, and I am certain you will too.

(I have caught glimpses of his fairytale fabric creations in the past but never knew the maker. I’m sure many readers are familiar with the frustration of finding something wonderful only to be unable to find out more, followed by the delight that comes when you can finally connect the work to the name of a maker, and perhaps even see more of their extraordinary creations.)

Woodland foxes, embroidered moths and elegant beasts lured me into a textile world rich in folklore and storytelling, that oozes fragility, charm and above all, beauty.

Susan Horth Jewellery and Sculptures

One of my favourite makers recently is Susan Horth, who constructs exquisite animal and insect sculptures and jewellery pieces from woven wire and bead jewels. Each piece is stunningly detailed and surprisingly life-like. They seem so precious and intricate that time can easily slip away whilst you gaze at them. I am particularly fond of the little bee and lizard brooches.

Elsa Mora: Paper Cuts and Sculptures

Following my adventures into paper cutting, I have been looking at the work of multimedia artist, Elsa Mora. Her website hosts a collection of art forms, varying from porcelain sculpture, assembled found objects, paintings, drawings, and both two and three dimensional paper cuts. I lost myself for many hours whilst browsing her portfolio and blog. Her work is beautifully detailed, such as the paper ring pictured above with a miniscule fox sitting outside a house, and the elegant intertwining elements of her paper cuts.

Kate Macdowell Animal Sculpture

Kate Macdowell’s porcelain sculptures explore human contemporary environmental impact and the ways in which this conflicts with romantic ideals of natural unity.

Myeongbeom Kim: Sculpture and Installation

I have become quite intrigued by the installation and performance work of Myeongbeom Kim, particularly his work with trees and glass which seem to touch on the fragility of nature. After browsing through his website I found myself surprised by the wit and otherworldliness present in some of these works, breaking down boundaries between nature and the artificial world in a rather peaceful and tentative way.
