Mister Finch

I was wandering around the web last night – as you do – when I discovered Mister Finch. This is what he says about himself:

My name is Finch – it’s actually my surname… everyone calls me it and I like it.
I live in Leeds in Yorkshire, not too far from the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
I actually have no formal training in anything to do with sewing or my textile based work. I’ve learnt everything myself.
I’ve tried many areas creatively over the years and now I find myself sewing which I adore.
I’ve called my business Mister Finch so its clear from the start that I’m a man and one that sews.

He sews the most beautiful evocative soft textile sculptures I’ve seen. They remind me of the illustrations in children’s storybooks of yesterday. Here’s a taster:

You can see more on his blog and on flickr. If that has whetted your appetite he has an etsy shop too.

And he has cats, which makes him even more agreeable in my eyes.
