Yeah yeah, another drone video. But it’s coooool!
Ashes2Beauty is a bronze charm shop, and they carry some of the more unusual pieces I’ve seen, including doll parts.
They have an especially large selection of eyes.
Other neat doo-dads abound. Most of it has a nice, primitive feel. I’m dying to grab some of this stuff for my art.
I learned a new phrase yesterday: Society Silk. Popular in the late 19th and early 20th century, this was a realistic style of embroidering botanicals, using single-strand silk thread. It reminds me very much of Chinese silk painting, which was popular at the time.
I’ve been looking more into needle arts–not because I want to quilt–but because I want to use quilting skills in some of my artwork. One of the blogs I’ve started following linked the astonishing work of Kelly Cline, who takes Society Silk pieces and quilts them into masterworks.
Most often done on doilies and hankies, Society Silk pieces are small and lovely. I think I’ll be keeping an eye out for them from now on.
Ellie Davies creates magical forest images. I expect the Fairy Queen is watching from the shadows.
Just a quick-and-dirty art post today, but a wonderful one. I love glass work, and Shayna Lieb‘s delicate explorations blow me away.
Walk the Plank does some cool performance and installation work. This is beautiful, though I’d probably put my hair in a swim cap.
