i’m jealous of amy santoferraro… again

“BaskeTREE”… get it?! Ha! Not only is the title of this series hilarious, but all of the pieces are just so fun! Thrift-shopped bits n’ pieces, and what I assume are chunks of pink floral-arrangement foam, assembled into the weirdest little bonsai tree-ish things I’ve ever seen. This is the work of American artist Amy Santoferraro. I wrote about her years ago, and when I stumbled on this work the other day {over on Artsy Forager} it was time to write again… obviously. And now, it’s time to go to the thrift shop, and maybe the plant store… obviously.

    These were just plainly the most fun little things I’d seen in a long time! My hubby should be thankful we’re doing this traveling thing because if we had a permanent home, I would soooo be trying to make something like this.

    These are fun and wacky! They remind me a bit of Dr. Seuss landscapes.
    That pink stuff may be rigid foam insulation – I’ve used it in design school for sculpting – it’s much less crumbly than the florist foam.
