Stitchy Snippets - Texture
Undulating, organic sculptures are masterfully crafted by artist and designer Rowan Mersh. Each element of his sculptures is individually positioned and fixed.
The elements and structure of the chosen materials are explored to maximum effect. Mersh creates stunning textural art works using an assortment of media from leather and fabric to walnut shells and seashells.
The textures hold so much depth that they resemble nature perfectly such as ruffled feathers, knots in oak, tousled fur and sea creatures' swirling tentacles. The realistic quality of Mersh's works of art and attention to detail is inspirational.
