Whoever thought wood is all hard?

Elisa Strozyk breaks the notion that wood is a hard material. Using triangular wood chips, she recreates works traversing the boundaries between rigid and fluid materials. What is truly astounding is this is not all Elisa does. Very inspiring, especially the idea of combining soft and hard textures on one single surface.

A fun weekend project we thoroughly enjoyed

Tried our hands at using washi tape to cross-stitch a PacMan design, not too bad but perhaps darker eyes? Do use a simple design or risk a backache trying to stand and work out 2700 stitches. Google 'simple cross stitch designs' for a start and have fun! This design took us approximately 1/2 hour. Have a go and share your artwork with us at our Facebook page

Clever ideas - Sculpture from toilet rolls

Every now and then, we come across something that surprises us, and this is one of them. Truly clever, Anastessia Elias, a French illustrator and paper artist, astounds us with her intricate dioramas, tiny neat worlds contained within the humble toilet roll.

Reinventing Cross Stitch - Evelin Kasikov

Another one of numerous talented designers to have emerged from the Central St. Martins College, we are so into designers bent on re-inventing cross-stitch. Evelin Kasikov proved her mettle through modernising the cross stitch, once considered as 'granny' and 'craft-like'. All her works push the boundaries of craft and design, and are thoroughly modern and ingenious.
