Really liking these handmade bags and storage baskets from artist/creator, Kyoko Sato. Found them on Japanese handmade market site, Iichi. The bags are posted as fine knit but the stitches look like crochet. In any case we love the colors, the leather accents and the fabric-covered button embellishments.

Dazzled by these large-scale floor installations created by Dutch artist, Suzan Drummen. The complex patterns are composed of crystals, mirrors, precious stones, chrome metal and optical glass. Much of the wall creations are usually pinned but the elements for the floor display are often placed loosely making the artwork unguarded. She says this regarding the installations:
“When you see a space in a convex lens, you will see this space differently. In many convex lenses together, however, the space becomes staggering. The reflections can no longer be ‘read’ by the eyes. Automatically the eyes focus differently in an attempt to see the whole. This moment of simultaneously grasping and not grasping I am constantly studying. The material helps me doing this.”
“Looking I find the most beautiful, comforting and intense activity there is, one I’d like to share with other people. Perhaps I’m on a kind of mission: I would like others to be more aware of their own looking.”

Shown above are the paper sculptures created by multimedia artist, Elsa Mora. These stunning papercuts show an incredible attention to detail, consistency and certainly much patience. She writes this regarding her medium:
“Paper is a simple material that can be manipulated in endless ways. From flat pieces to 3 dimensional sculptures and installations, to photographic images and animation, paper has the potential to become whatever we want. The only limit is our imagination.”
