{ strange & storytelling creatures }

By Brit

Inspired by nature and British folklore, Mr Finch creates strange and magical creatures out of of upcycled material:  Velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress and a vintage apron become birds and beasts, looking for new owners and adventures to have. His creations are part whimsy part true to form, all hand stitched with intricate detailing and made for people who are also a little lost, found and forgotten…

{ surreal fairytale }

By Brit

British artist Katharine Morling is working in the medium of ceramics. Each piece has been given layers of emotion and embedded with stories, which are open for interpretation in the viewer’s mind. When put together, the pieces combine to make a tableau staging the still lives of everyday objects. An original and surreal fairytale experience.

{ tangled and fused }

By Brit

I have a soft spot for chunky knitting projects and love the works of textile designer and artist Dana Barnes who experiments with unspun natural fibers and innovative felting processes to create large textile art pieces. Inspired by nature, her work references crop fields, grazed hills and gnarled and knobby aged oak trees. Wonderful!

{ bonjour friday }

By Brit

Walking through the streets of London three weeks ago, I discovered these lovely creations from Katherine Morling in the shop window of Chelsea Textiles. The artist creates still lives of everyday objects in a kind of 3 dimensional drawings that are filled with stories.

{ wooden wonderland }

By Brit

Greg Hatton creates furniture and landscrape features that blend art and nature with function. He designs and builds with reclaimed materials, found objects and introduced trees. Love his work!

{ whites }

By Brit

Like you know white is one of my favorite colors and this morning I felt like creating a composition of little white objects according to my mood, it’s my wintery moodboard.

{ collage of curiosities }

By Brit

A few month ago, I created a little collage with some curiosities of my bits and bobs box:  a bird illustration of an old book, a vintage metallic flower ornament from the Paul Bert flea market, a porcelain letter from Le Petit Atelier de Paris, a dried oak leaf from an autumnal walk in our woods and some vintage lace, the whole pasted on toile de Jouy wallpaper.
