I was reminded, in conversation, of an article a long while ago in National Geographic featuring these beautiful abstract quilt creations from Gee’s Bend in Alabama.

I have seen a few books folded with a similar technique but I think the work of Exploded Library is some of my favourite.

Both the maker of this video Jamie Isbell and the potter Sue Paraskeva appreciate what dedicated attention to detail can produce. The video is a beautiful sensitive study of Sue Paraskeva’s steadied skill and minute expression through closely shot and multi-edited footage of her creative process. Thanks to Fan The Fire for the post.

I posted Mini Eco’s work before and now I’m plugging her book, which I’m going to buy. I think everything she makes seems in essence to be simple and straight forward, but the finish on these creations is obviously handled with steely accuracy. She then photographs her lovely crafts with a light, bright colourful and clean touch, which always cheers me up.
