Artist Susanna Bauer

I first saw the work of model maker, Susanna Bauer in Frankie Magazine and was taken with the detail in her unique projects.  All of the leaves above are Magnolia leaves which have been crocheted, darned and patch-worked.  How cool are they?  Susanna works with stones, wood and fabric and other mediums, largely inspired by nature.  Her career as a model maker has seen her work on movies such as Wallace and Gromit!  Making a living out of making, that equals the good life in my eyes.
