unconventionability ;

At the moment on my foundation course we're getting a lot of workshops and seminars, and today i attended a really interesting on on 3D Textiles. Unfortunately my outcomes weren't amazing, but i've got loads of ideas.
I also came across this wonderful artist,
TARA DONOVAN.

She takes materials, from drinking straws to Scotch tape and created incredible sculptures from them.

- Drinking straws

The shapes she creates are so beautiful, they really make you look twice and wonder and the beauty in every day objects

- Paper cups

I wonder how many, many hours she spends, trying to perfect how to stack/stick/melt/manipulate her materials...she must have such patience!

- Paper plates

- Pencils


- Scotch Tape
