Welcome to this weeks Undiscovered Weekly article for Artisan Crafts, Where we are committed to hand pick exceptional, new found talent in which we would like to share with the rest of deviantART.
This week we will be featuring an artist who specializes in molding and casting, a culinary artist and a woodworker, 3 very different, but very talented artist I would like to share with you all today.
Folkenstal is 27 years old and lives in Switzerland, they work as a graphics designer in the week and as a hobby, is a propmaker at the weekends. Folkenstal was interested in crafting and drawing since their childhood and had always continued to draw up until 2 years ago, where they had started prop making instead of drawing their cartoon characters.
'as long as Bethesda has some nice weapon designs out there. I’ll be there to de-fictionalize them.' - Folkenstal
One of Theresa's proudest abilities is being unique with her work, Using the simplest ingredients to create original and innovative desserts, like Jello products are a just example.
Lucia is 26 years old and comes from Slovakia, she is the kind of person who feels she needs to give herself energy in form of creativity. Lucia studied wood carving for five years in high school and has always seen it as an motivational interest, she is also interested in art history, books, movies, computer games and music.
'Unconventionality, controversy and extravagance is almost a condition to make me interested in anything.' Ljotunnr
Lucia's mother studied woodcarving, whilst her father studied sculpturing of stones, so it's only natural that from an early age a connection to the arts of craft had piqued her curiosity to try and work with something like wood, ad crayons and sketchbooks were just not working out as satisfying enough for her. Lucia believes that life itself is the most symbolic form of inspiration, blending the life of man in with nature and expressing the ideals of mythology into her work. Since Lucia studied cultural studies at University, she is finding much more inspiration in archetypes, which are part of many cultures, and which strengthened her relationship with various forms of mythology and thus, integrated into her work.
Working with wood requires physical strength, but also an eye for aesthetics. Lucia works with traditional carving material like basswood, which is a soft, pliable, fragrant and beautiful material to work with, she rarely uses other kinds of wood, except in the case of working on small parts, like pendants or earrings. It is obvious that the talent, put into Lucia's creations are very creative, unique and inspirational, to come such a long way through the art of woodcarving has most definitely sharpened her skills and wishes to create more modern designs with a potent expression -
- 'Someday, I would like to represent the whole universe in wooden form, its impressive size, mystique, and indescribable transcendental power.' Ljotunnr
I'd like to personally thank these exceptional deviants for their immense talent and sharing with us their artistic endeavors.
