I recently saw the flickr page of artist and designer Neta Amir and it put a huge smile on my face.
She creates everyday objects out of fabric and stuffing.
I love the detail she puts into her work but also the chunky heaviness of it.
She recreates it correctly and simultaneously embraces the weight and natural qualities of fiber.
Amir uses her everyday life and daily environment as the theme and inspiration of her work.
from a press release:
Her installation tells a story about the traces left behind by various people, on the same place, at various moments. Combining objects within the context of an installation adds another story to the existence of the objects once more, and invites viewers to complement this by their own personal interpretation.
She also creates some incredible puppets-like creatures and has a lovely blog.
