Fungus among us

The internet is constantly sending out spores leading us to remarkable artists and craftsmen.  Like Mr. Finch, UK based textile artist who crafts exquisite oddities from recycled materials.  Old curtains, wedding lace and vintage textiles become woodland creatures and fairytale fungi.

From his website...
"Scraps of thread, fabric and paper are stitched and pulled into fairytale creatures looking for new owners and worlds to inhabit. They hide in the woods, behind masks, some have died along the way and are buried under spoon lockets. Finch works alone and makes everything himself by hand in a studio full of books, glass jars and naughty cats."

His portfolio a virtual cabinet of curiosities.

Puttin' the "fun" in fungus!  Have a great weekend.
