clare celeste börsch





I’m gonna need a pair of scissors, and the name of the used bookstore where Berlin based artist Clare Celeste Börsch shops! Vintage books, cut up and pasted back together into bizarre, yet perfect, compositions… birds, flowers, gemstones, and of course, water skiers!  I love all of them so much, but I happen to own that little birdie perched on his flowery gemstone island, so I’m gonna have to call that one my favorite. Or the water skiers. Or those gazelles. Or that sake drinking bride. Hm.

    Anything involving gemstones is an automatic win in my book.

    NO she is not a geisha, she is a bride in traditional Japanese style :)
    And drinking Sake as a ritual.

    I thought she was drinking tea in a ceremony, I am so glad you commented! @Yoko. I need to rename it from Taste of Tea to … Sake (or so, I will sleep on it!) Thanks so much, I love that she is a bride. <3
