Moth Pulling a Tiny Coach by Mister Finch (second post because I love his moths).
From his website: My name is Finch – it’s actually my surname… everyone calls me it and I like it. I’ve called my business Mister Finch so its clear from the start that I’m a man and one that sews.
I live in Leeds in Yorkshire, not too far from the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.I actually have no formal training in anything I make and apart from a short art course I did many years ago I’ve learnt all I know myself. Ive tried many areas creatively over the years and now I find myself sewing which I adore. My main inspirations come from nature and often I return to certain ideas again and again. 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. Shape shifting witches, moon gazing hares and a smartly dressed devil ready to invite you to stray from the path. Humanizing animals with shoes and clothes is something I’ve always done and I imagine them to come alive at night.
Making things has always been incredibly important to me and is often an amazing release to get it out of my system. 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. A story sewn in, woven in. Velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress and a vintage apron become birds and beasts, looking for new owners and adventures to have.Storytelling creatures for people who are also a little lost, found and forgotten… http://www.mister-finch.com
