Figural Lace Sculptures

You know I love when people do clever things with traditional materials, yes? This crazy talented Hungarian artist, Agnes Herczegby, is no acceptation and when I saw her work it stopped me in my tracks. With string and branches she creates mind-blowing art. Enjoy! Original article found here.

Figural Lace Sculptures Attached to Found Wood by Agnes Herczeg

Hungarian artist Agnes Herczeg creates figural lace works of female forms, capturing figures in moments of contemplation or work. In one piece the subject stands at a loom, appearing to weave herself from the included fibers. In each of her works Herczeg uses all natural materials, incorporating small pieces of wood or other found materials to serve as a sculpture’s bed frame, hair accessory, floating vessel, or small shelf.

Herczeg studied textile conservation at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, and over the years has gathered several methods of embroidery and lace-making to use in her work such as needle lace, pillow lace, macramé, and more. You can purchase her lace sculptures directly from her website, both attached to found natural objects and as individual lace works.

    What a fascinating post. You always find the coolest things. These pieces are incredible–between the lace skills required and the sheer artistry involved, I am blown away. And humbled, very, very humbled. 🙂 This woman is a genius!
