This process and portrait series of videos on etsy sellers at the storque is simply inspirational. I saw one on meet me at mikes then went over to etsy and have since spent almost the whole morning watching them. From ceramic artists to doll makers to organic soap makers – there is so much to see.
I love seeing Mimi Kirchner discuss her doll making process and take a peek into her studio : Kim Westad is a ceramic artist who explains her process – she has a gorgeous studio and her work is amazing : and sustainable wood jewelry artist PrasseinDesignStudio shows her process – really fantastic.
OH ME OH MY. Purl Soho and Mimi Kirchner have come together and given us this awesome doll pattern. Mimi’s provided the most lovely detailed how-to, great pictures and clearly showing technique. Nice one! Link.
The whipup 2009 calendar features 13 artists/makers/designers whose work has been featured on whipup. This year I hand picked the participants but next year I hope to open it up for everyone. Over the next 13 days I will be featuring each of the participants – so you can get to know them (if you don’t already) a little better.
April featured artist is Mimi Kirchner: www.mimikirchner.com/blog. Mimi is a fibre artist and doll maker. Her dolls are beyond amazing, with extraordinary attention to detail and personality.
O.M.G – Mimi is just awesome, have you seen these? Really! Just so amazing. Link.
