London & Paris Inspiration

I just got back from an AWESOME trip to London and Paris, and let me be the first to tell you that it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! While is was in London I had to go back to the Victoria & Albert Museum. Right now they are having a show all based on craft called The Power of Making. It was amazing! Everything in the show was a "craft" there was a Japanese artist that made a real bicycle out of mahogany, one of Lady Gaga's wigs and even a gown made out of straight pins! So cool!! Unfortunately I was not able to take photos in the show because it wasn't allowed... BUT there was a piece that was outside of the exhibition.

Can you tell what the gorilla is made out of?? Bent and welded together coat hangers! It was amazing and very tall, my guess standing about 7 feet tall!

So I wanted to share a few more photos that have really inspired me from the trip to Europe and it's totally working its way into my studio life. I'm in the process of figuring out how to make a tulip pyramid or a tulipiere. I can't wait to get laid off from my full time to, only to get rehired in March so I can concentrate on my life in the studio. ENJOY!

  1. That gorilla is soooo cool! I'm not surprised the British offer such exposure to craft artists... I think in many ways they are much more open and willing to explore new territories when it comes to art.
    great article :)
