These quilts would be lovely if they were regular quilts, but they’re not… They’re sculpted from wood!
AimeezArtz: I live in Cloverdale, Canada with my husband and my little Jack Russel, Mini. I have been creating mosaics, big and small for seven years. My work has been in shops as close as Langley, BC and as far as New Mexico.
Every mosaic is different, that’s why I’m drawn to this medium. I never get tired of the beauty and complexity and I’m always trying quirky new things to bring light and movement into an ancient art form.
Hello, my name is Kelly Massey and this is my line of handmade wearables, Pretty Penny.
I live in West Hollywood with my husband and fantastic, fun, little girl who is seven. They put up with my piles and piles of fabric and leaning towers of ink jars relatively cheerfully because they are often busy making things too.
Lately, I have been screen printing and sewing scarves and clothing out of bright and soft bamboo and cotton knits.
Art Nest is a place to celebrate everyday beauty, hard work, living creatively, artistic achievements and remembering to live simply.
I make these pincushion rings using my favorite fabrics, lush colored wool felt and nickel free, silver plated adjustable rings. I’ve been using mine for nearly four months now. I don’t think I can ever go back to storing my pins in a red tomato.Wearing my pincushion ring allows for more freedom while I sew at my machine. When not in use, I hang the pincushion on the bobbin winder.
This small sculptural glass bowl adds a delicate touch of color where ever it is placed. The open lattice work makes these pieces appear to be light as a feather. And, while they are delicate the overall form is sturdy, like actual nests. The process used to make these insures that no two are ever alike. Each unique with its own twists and bends. This aqua color is like a cool drink of water.
