Inspiring me this week...Mr. Finch weaving thread, fabric and paper into fairytale creatures


My friend Corey wrote about this incredible artist, Mr. Finch in her Saturday Art Saves series and I remember being overwhelmed by his imagination and use of antique textiles, and I just love how he transforms scraps of old textiles into works of art.


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.
