Delightful Arty Crush ~ Mister Finch
“Delightful Arty Crush” is a feature I have on my blog which showcases artists who’s work I admire and find inspiring. It features a wide range of artists from collage, textile, encaustic and lots of other amazing mediums. I’m sure you will find each artists work just as inspiring as I do and I hope you will visit their blogs and other links included in their feature. The images I share with you are just the tip of the iceberg in regards to their awesomeness.
“Making things has always been incredibly important to me and is often an amazing release to get it out of my system. It’s a joy to hunt for things for my work…the lost, found and forgotten all have places in what I make”.
Today, my “Delightful Arty Crush” featured artist is, Mister Finch. Mister Finch creates some of the most amazing fairytale soft sculpture pieces I’ve ever seen. He uses scraps of thread, fabric and paper that he stitches and pulls into fairytale creatures like no other artist I’ve found. Most of his pieces use recycled materials, as he feels they add more authenticity and charm. Which I completely agree. He uses items like velvet curtains from an old hotel, threadbare wedding dresses and vintage aprons… be still my heart. I would love to go hunting for textiles with Mister Finch. Can you imagine how awesome it would be?!
