WE FOUND MR. FINCH

We found this unique work of Mister Finch, a UK based artist who taught himself everything he knows.
Scraps of thread, fabric and paper are stitched and pulled into fairy tale creatures looking for new owners and worlds to inhabit.
They hide in the woods, behind masks, some have died along the way and are buried under spoon lockets. Finch works alone and makes everything himself by hand in a studio full of books, glass jars and naughty cats.

Mr. Finch about his work:
"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…"
