Figural Lace Sculptures Attached to Found Wood – Take 2

Figural Lace Sculptures Attached to Found Wood by Agnes Herczeg

Kate Sierzputowski on August 14, 2017- Colossal

 

“Hungarian artist Agnes Herczeg creates figural lace works of female forms, capturing figures in moments of contemplation or work. In one piece the subject stands at a loom, appearing to weave herself from the included fibers. In each of her works Herczeg uses all natural materials, incorporating small pieces of wood or other found materials to serve as a sculpture’s bed frame, hair accessory, floating vessel, or small shelf.”

 

“Herczeg studied textile conservation at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, and over the years has gathered several methods of embroidery and lace-making to use in her work such as needle lace, pillow lace, macramé, and more. You can purchase her lace sculptures directly from her website, both attached to found natural objects and as individual lace works.”

 

 

Thanks again to Kate Sierzputowski from Colossal for this article.

I absolutely love this piece. If I knew who the artist was and could afford it, I would certainly have to have this. I think this is my favorite gourd ever, and that’s saying a lot.

Beautiful Baskets – Take 10

Dodie Ulery – Gladstar 6

I absolutely drool over baskets. I have all kind of excuses at the ready for why I ‘need’ a basket I find. I’m the same way about wooden boxes – new, old…

My husband has learned to help me steer clear of anywhere boxes and baskets are sold.  He does point them out at yard sales, though, and for that I’m truly grateful. :0)

I love the creativity I see from basket makers. It seems that there are endless things one can do to make each one different. For example, look closely at the picture below. I’ve never seen the ruffled edges or rings, or braided rims of these. I think they are stunning.

People getting creative with food simply delights me. Many times I laugh out loud when I find things like this. I just don’t personally think like this, for some reason. I just fix food and eat it. But my spirits soar when I see the talent and creativity some people put into food presentation.

Patchwork & Quilting

 

My friend, Kay, is a master quilter. She usually has one she’s working on, or is planning. She’s very creative and a super-active lady, canning or gardening when not quilting. I’ve always admired people who quilt. Kay taught my friend, Linda, to quilt so that she could make heirlooms for her great grandbabies.  A good friend, Alice, machine quilts their creations. A very talented trio.

If You’re Gonna Get a Tattoo… Take 3

Elegant Animalistic Tattoos by Joanna Swirskaby

Christopher Jobson on July 14, 2017 – Colossal

 

“Wrocław-based tattoo artist Joanna Swirskaby inks carefully considered depictions of animals tinged with psychedelic splashes of color. Her most common subject is the humble feline which seems to make an appearance in nearly half of her works which run the gamut from graceful to fantastically absurd.

 

You can follow more of her recent work on Instagram.”

I want to reach out and stroke this child’s hair. Isn’t the light in this painting wonderful?

 

 

 

Selene Salvi

The girl is beautiful, and I love the pose. The texture of the clothes is amazing, too.

 

 

 

 

Donald O’Conner

I want to look for shells with this child. The dress is eye-popping and I love the texture of the sand. I can almost hear the water lapping.
