Admiring these soft sculptures created by Grand Rapids native, Molly Burgess.Â This fiber artistâ€™s love of nature and science led her to making insects, arachnid and especially moths.Â She incorporates hand embroidery, machine stitching, painting, dying and wire work to form her creations.Â In her bio she writes this about the moth:
â€œMany types of mothsâ€”including my favorite the luna mothâ€”only live a couple of weeks after they emerge. I found it interesting that the part of their lives where they are the most beautiful is also the most fleeting. My work is definitely influenced by a desire to create a lasting representation of that beauty.â€
