Somewhere between the fanciful and the macabre, lies Mister Finch.
Using nothing more that scraps of fabric, thread, paper and wire this self-taught Yorkshire artist crafts charmingly creepy fairytale creatures.
I see a lot of inspiration from Lewis Carroll illustrations in them.
In his hands, worn velvet curtains become an enormous moth, a vintage wedding dress and pearls are now a tea-serving spider, and scraps of faux fur a stuffed and twisted into bumble bees. Every remnant he finds has potential to be something more magical. Mister Finch works alone and makes everything himself by hand in a studio full of books, glass jars and naughty cats. When he’s not crafting these amazing soft sculpture delights, about 12 hours a day by the way, he can be found reading and watching old movies.
Mister Finch makes custom pieces upon request, if you’re so inclined. Since his Etsy shop is rarely stocked.
and he also has a blog worth scouring…..Trust me.
Happy Easter, Y’all
People. This guy is an artistic genius! Methinks I know a certain someone who would love to receive one of his efforts as a gift! Point me to his etsy shop!
Look what’s hopping down the Bunny trail… All Tim Burton-Style!
I love Mister Finch’s work, can’t wait to see the book he’s working on
OMG, those mushrooms! I die. Wow. Thanks for the post. This guy is really something.
I used to live in Huddersfield when I was a kid. We moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, and now I live in Brevard North Carolina. We have a lot of arts in this part of North Carolina, Asheville is 20 mins away an a major hub for artists. A gallery here might be interested in your work.
