Mr X Stitch Presents: Beefranck’s Emporium – James Lassey
|Share the love...||
Over at Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with the services of Beefranck, the Queen of Ironic Stitching, who curates the terrific “Emporium of Embroidered Excellence and Splendiferous Stitchery”. Each week, these posts explore themes expressed through embroidery, and they’re ace. So without further ado, I welcome you to…
This week is all about James Lassey and his plush and soft sculpture creations.
I’ll admit to not knowing much about him, but I know that I like him.
His work is colorful, unique, and plentiful. His photostream is full of pictures of piles of plush just like this one.
There’s always something just a little familiar about his work while still being new and fresh.
I can’t choose a favorite, all his work is just awesome.
He has done several soft sculptures of guns, some of them in bright pink and silver. Here he’s created a warrior to use the gun as well.
Beefranck is the Queen of Ironic Stitching and is responsible for a lot of stuff on www.mrxstitch.com, the number one contemporary embroidery and needlecraft blog on the planet. She is also the top selling pattern designer in the MrXStitch etsy store.
She can often be found hanging out in the Phat Quarter group on Flickr and co-hosts Emergency Pants, a podcast that is not for the faint hearted!
