Oh my CRAFT!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

what?
inspired by the crap i make in my spare time- often crazy, unusual and down right weird, the things on here are usually made for a purpose- either for my own use or for my display for my work. and others are projects i hope to complete or i think are really rad.



who?
I currently work full time with a company that sells art products. I've finished process photography at tafe & half-completed a diploma of graphic design. i have taken many short-courses including glass bead design, silver jewellery, silver metal clay and polymer clay and folk art.

happy crafting.. and shiz!

Incredible Hand-Embroidered Portraits by Cayce Zavaglia

Starting out as a painter and moving to embroidery allowed Cayce Zavaglia to utilise both sets of skills when created these fastidious portraits that display a painstaking level of detail. I’ve embedded an interesting video below that looks in to Cayce’s work process more and lets you see the astonishing amount of patience she has for each portrait.

Cape Town-based artist, Nicola De Jager hand embroiders Day of the Dead skulls with a bit of a twist. She wants to change society’s view on skulls and their association with the macabre by making them bright, colorful, and beautiful. Starting her stitching with the eyes and then moving on to the colors, nose, mouth, etc., each skull begins to take on a personality and slowly develops into the finished piece. Nicola says, “I embrace embroidery as an art form as there is something powerful about creating something so intimate. The use of thread as a medium and embroidering as the application grounds me and slows me down to become more aware and present.”

I think she definitely succeeded in making the macabre beautiful. These skulls certainly make me happy.
