i saw these on arrested motion too and was so taken by them!
i love the ghostlyness, but even without it being clear the shapes are so beautiful...
it must have been a lot of work (if it was hand-done) to make all the moulds.

it says it's pvc so she probably makes casts/molds and
makes them with plastic...
wow i never thought of it as lifesize but that would be so cool!
yeah there should be little figure versions so we can collect them!!

i'm so much more impressed and obsessed after reading her blog!!

i realized that since she seems to work in the tiny little room of hers, she must make the clear plastic molds by heating (with a heatgun) sheets of pvc over the clay sculpts!!
so impressive.

I didn't even consider that they were life size until you mentioned this. I think that these would terrify me being that big. But as miniatures, I would love them!

Wow, how incredibly stunning and I can see how it would inspire you in regards to your own work. Makes me want to see your art in sculpture form, actually.

Victionary project 'Dark Inspiration'

Hi there,

This is Elfi Chan, a Project coordinator from Victionary, a design book publisher and workshop based in Hong Kong. I write to seek for help about the contact of this artist.

I have been looking for the direct contact of this artist but have no luck. I have no idea how to approach her, since we have a new book coming out soon and her works are just perfect to the book. Do you know how to contact her besides contacting UNION? I have been writing to them for many times but received no reply at all. Hopefully you can help me :)

Thanks very much :)

Elfi (elfi@victionary.com)
