i’m jealous of amy joy watson

Umm, I just have to get this out – that pink balloon is killing me… killing me! Ok, let’s move on. So, you’re not going to believe what these amazing sculptures, by Australian artist Amy Joy Watson, are made from. Ready? Balsa wood. Watercolor stained, carefully cut bits of balsa wood, delicately hand-stitched {hand-stitched!!} together to create these geometric shapes that are, you guessed it, killing me!!!

{…thanks to Paula for sending me a link to Amy’s beautiful work. Oh, and while we’re talking about amazing art made from wood, pop over to sfgirlbybay to see my latest curated collection. Today’s theme… yep, wood.}
