It’s Christmas Eve and like me, you may still have some Christmas shopping to do….whoopsie! So I’m asking if you have a precious moment to spare, and I’m almost certain you do, you have to look at these truly inspiring and beautiful quilled contemporary pieces comprised of snowflake ornaments and a poinsettia, that’s right… just one, from the creative duo from Saint Paul, Minnesota, Judith and Rolfe. I’m in love with their work because it showcases examples of taking the art of quilling to the next level. The snowflake designs are minimal, only outlining the edges to make the perfect dangling ornament. The poinsettias on the other hand are more complex, and have a similar feel to the more recent works of Yulia Brodskaya, utilizing a more dense and almost stroked coloring with each strip like painting the actual strokes in the paper sculpture. The husband and wife duo are both designers/architects by craft, which clearly brings to light that they both share a special talent and also patience I’m sure, in mastering a fine art such as this is… it’s truly breathtaking. I would love to take it up one day myself just to give it a try.
Be sure to follow their Instagram, they are constantly crafting amazingness. That said, Happy Holidays from us to you!
