I stumbled across the works of Elaine Bradford and was immediately blown away. She makes wonderful sculptures with crochet, other mixed media materials and taxidermy animals. I would love to see them in person. You can check out her site and flickr for more info and photos. Here's a few of my favorites.
|"Little Guy" 2010|
|I really like them when they are photographed outside. Adds a sense of surreality to them.|
|'Family Portrait as Panda Bears" 2010 This is one of favorite pieces. I love the little world she created.|
|'Harry, With Worlds on Top"|
|"Divided Attention" 2006|
|'Of course it Quacks, It's a Duck" This piece is amazing--the gold feet and bill are so great.|
|'No Legs" 2007|
|This elephant is just amazing. Can you just imagine the size of this? Wow.|
Well I guess that's enough---please go check out all of her photos. She has a ton of work--each piece worth a look.
