Beautiful Flora And Fauna Made From Vintage Fabrics By Self-Taught Artist Mr. Finch
A wonderful textile artist, who only introduces himself as Mister Finch, has been creating beautiful replicas of British flora and fauna using only vintage and recycled textiles and thread.
His pieces have a faded yet timeless feel to them, which comes from both the old materials he (re)uses and the subject matter he draws upon. As he explains on his blog, “Flowers, insects and birds really fascinate me with their amazing life cycles and extraordinary nests and behaviour. British folklore is also so beautifully rich in fabulous stories and warnings and never ceases to be at the heart of what I make.”
He makes a point of recycling old or vintage materials; “It’s a joy to hunt for things for my work…the lost, found and forgotten all have places in what I make. Most of my pieces use recycled materials, not only as an ethical statement, but I believe they add more authenticity and charm.”
