i’m jealous of michelle mckinney

I’m not quite ready for summer to be over yet, but these somewhat autumnal installations are slowly easing me in. Who knew that ultra-fine woven metal could be this organic looking… well, I suppose UK based artist Michelle McKinney had a hunch. The leaves, the butterflies… but those orangie-pink circles {aka “money plant”, “honesty”, or “silver dollars”} are my absolute favorites. So delicate, and oh so beautiful. If she had a few “chinese lanterns” and I might actually be ready for fall… maybe.

    […] first spotted UK artist Michelle McKinney’s work over at The Jealous Curator and was immediately hooked. How she can create such delicate, ethereal pieces from metal is beyond […]
