Human Hair Insects

Some time ago I wrote a post on a human hair flower bouquet.
I loved it for its detailed craftsmanship, the gloomy colours and its creepy/fantastic feel. Meet Adrienne Antonson, a Seattle based artist who makes objects out of human hair and glue. She created a serie of insects that look quite amazing.

Adrienne; 'As an artist with a deep interest in sustainable and self-supporting systems, human hair seems the most immediate and true material. I find the historical implications and various uses of human hair fascinating. I am also intrigued with the attraction/repulsion response the material evokes. It is sentimental, challenging and honest'.

See her website for more butterflies, bugs and moths.
