Shona Wilson


Australian sculptor Shona Wilson has created these intricate sculptural assemblages with found natural materials.  Her ephemeral artworks are born out of a desire to open up creatively and spiritually.  Nature is her inspiration of which she says:

“The repetitive use of Nature’s detritus brings me closer to understanding the world we share. The materials themselves are storehouses of knowledge and information. They act as ‘keys’, unlocking doors to memory, science, history and imagination… For the past 20 years my work has been an invitation to marvel and wonder at the details within nature which I have presented predominantly through sculptural assemblages.”

Diana Renjina


Love these nature and folklore inspired hand painted wooden brooches and ornaments created by Riga-based illustrator, Diana Renjina. The wooden pieces are made from birch plywood delicately painted with acrylic paint and varnish.  Her main artistic focus is illustration but also wants to explore graphic and web design freelancing on a variety of projects.  

More of her work can be viewed on Instagram, Behance and Facebook.  Her brooches and illustration prints can be purchased in her Etsy shop, Knee Deep in a Cold Sea.

Martha Pachón Rodriguez


Recently viewed a post on This is Colossal about ceramic artist, Martha Pachón Rodriguez.  We loved her sculpted pieces that we also had to share.  The artist was born in Santa Fé de Bogotá, Colombia, graduated in fine arts in Neiva, Columbia and continued her education in Faenza, Italy.  On First Drops she shares her dedication to ceramics as follows:

“I was born in a land where we experience the use of ceramic in daily life. As a girl, I loved clay, my parents knew that a box of coloured clay to shape was more important to me than a toy. At University, my thesis in the Fine Arts Faculty was completely focused on ceramics. My inclinations have always come natural to me, they were never imposed and this represents my way of communicating with the world.”
