Realistic Needle Felted Sculptures by Erin Gardner







 









Erin Gardner is the designer and maker behind all the amazing sculptures at Grey Fox Felting. New York based fiber artist has been making soft sculptures for several years. It was in 2010 when Erin decided to focus on the art of needle felting when she across a craft shop that had a section with needle felting creations. I think it was love at first sight! 

Ever since she has been bringing joy with her creations often inspired by nature and animals. Her 3d sculptures have gotten realistic over the years that sometimes come perched on a wooden base. I love the little embroidery that she does to decorate her pieces. To see her work in the past and to get update on her upcoming work you can join her on Instagram. Currently she has a few pieces that are available for purchase in her online store - Grey Fox Felting.

Mr Milly’s Animal Shaped Ceramics














London based independent ceramics brand Mr Milly’s was started by two friends - Paul and Victoria. They first met at Brighton University when they were studying illustration after which Paul went on to do a Masters in Fine Art at the Royal College of Art. One afternoon, after their pottery class they were struck with an idea to create a product line of their own that reflected their keen interest for drawing. The idea turned into the brand - Mr Milly's. 

They handmake each piece of their ceramics that are unique in their form and structure. These whimsical ceramics shaped into animals shapes such as owl vase, monkey nut bowl, bird pitcher, cat heads for salt & pepper shakers are not only adorable but are suitable for everday use. Their products go really, really fast. So, to know about their new creations join them on Instagram.

Textile Dolls Inspired By Fairy Tales by Pantovola



















Good morning friends, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I would like to start this week with the amazing work of Anouk de Groot a textile artist from Scotland. I first discovered her work a few years ago and loved it so much that I shared it here. Thanks to websites like Pinterest where I once again, after all this time, came across her textile dolls that are inspired by fairy tales and folk art. Owls are a recurring theme in her work along with the mystical creatures that are constructed using vintage fabric, embroidery and beads. Each doll is one-of-a-kind piece which is hand-painted by the artist with love and care. You take a trip to a magical world for a while by visiting her store - Pantovola.

Women Portraits Painted in Vibrant Watercolors and Patterns



















Hi friends, thank you for your visits and the comments on the blog. I hope you found the last week's owl finds enjoyable. I shall wrap up for the weekend with these beautiful watercolor paintings by an artist from Istanbul Hülya Özdemir who is currently living in Bodrum. 

"Colour harmony sensibility" is how the artist describes the style of her artwork. The portraits of women in elaborate dresses and hair are often surrounded with animals, birds, flowers and other natural elements. Her paintings are inspired by Frida Kahlo and Gustav Klimt. The lustrous colors and wonderful patterns is what makes Hülya Özdemir's paintings unique. "I'm a colour hunter. I use my imagination as a colour catching net and collect them for my new paintings" via.

Have a great weekend! I'll see you on Monday.
