Oh. My. Gosh. How crazy cool are they? Kristen uses all sorts of goodies to craft her installation pieces: paper, polystyrene board, acrylic, light fixtures, pipe cleaners...amazing. I love how the gems and crystals seem to erupt and tumble over one another. And so ethereally beautiful when lit. Contented sigh. To view Kristen's more recent work, you can visit her website, here.
Now, how did I come to find these lovelies when most of this work ? Please let me tell you! I follow Terri Planty on pinterest (you should too), and she pinned Kristen's work from the Sycamore Street Press blog's May 2010 post. And the good people of Sycamore Street led me to the now defunct Bellwether Gallery.
