I feel so lucky to be able to share with you the work of beppe kessler
, a dutch artist who is fluent in so many different mediums. Her burned balsa wood brooches astonish me-- they are leopard-like, seashell-like, and yet wholly inimitable. Her commissioned work "Home" (2005) picks up the burned balsa wood motif, and turns it into something completely different-- small houses, gilded with gold leaf and color.
I love also the delicate rug that she designed on commission, and finally, this spare, perfect brooch
(click "artists" to find the work).
Beppe Kessler. Wow.
