Chris Gilmour

ChrisGilmourIn awe with these life size sculptures created by Italy-based artist, Chris Gilmour, whose pieces are made totally out of cardboard and glue. The artist best describes his work in an interview written on his website:

“One of the reasons I use cardboard is because it’s so easy to find- we have an immediate access to these “re-cycled” materials in a way that could never be possible with bronze or marble. It is also free of the historical and cultural weight of those classical sculptural materials, and can offer new readings of the work. By using a material which everybody knows and understands, I can build on the pre-existing associations to develop ideas and ways of reading the work. It’s a way of creating a language which is understood by many.”

Tripasai Architect

Tripasai-ArchitectPegboards has a new function for me now after seeing this embroidered wall decor created by multi-disciplinary design studio, Tripasai Architect.  The wall is a series of tiny dots embroidered with colorful cotton yarn in rhomboidal shapes transforming into leaves and flowers. The walls enhance the entry lobby of a Bangkok private residence.

Ironomori

IronomoriDon’t be surprised if I do repeat postings on this Japanese brand, Ironomori. Really liking their embroidered pins and earrings. Since the last posting on our old blog site, they have created another style that combines original illustration and embroidery. You can follow them on Facebook and purchase their collection on Japanese handmade market sites, Creema, Iichi and Minne.
