I mentioned this exhibition before, the Needle Felting Extravaganza — it is ending tomorrow… if you are in NYC, you still have time to stop by and see some amazing needle felting work, but for you who don’t live here, here are some photos I took from the opening reception night… Each work was so original and very creative, and miraculous attention to details, I was amazed! Hope you enjoy!
I’m starting off with Hine Mizushima‘s “The Unnatural History Museum”…
She was wearing the giant squid! (It was really nice seeing you there, Hine-san!)
Next up, “Strangeland” by Kit Lane…
The tip of these strings were lit!
“Icons & Totems & Pieces of the Past” by Moxie…
Last but not least, “Fractured Fairy Tales” by Yoko Nomura…
Which one is your favorite? :)
I’m off to a slow start today… a morning appointment in the city turned into all day thing, just getting back to start my week… (hope you had a nice weekend!)
and as I see even more Japan relief things that people are doing/organizing all over the Internet (so touching!!), I just couldn’t resist posting this Heart Brooch by Hine — soo cute!! I’m going to have to get one for myself :) 50% of all proceeds from her shop will be donated to Japan earthquake fund.
I still have some pictures to share from her show… will come soon! xo Hijiri
