Weekend Eye Candy -Allyson Bone Edition

Unadorned by sparkling gems; elaborate settings or the distracting gleam of gold or silver metal - the stunning craftsmanship and attention to detail in Allyson Bone's work is evident. By using only the intricately pierced shapes of birds; bunnies; bows and stylized coral, enhanced by a deep black patina Allyson asks the viewer to focus on the bare 'bones' of her work.




And after examining the stark contrast between the sensuous; feminine cutouts and the industrial; precisely soldered geometric silhouettes of her constructs how could anyone fail to admire the playfulness; imagination and skill of the maker. This is design at it's purest. 

Please take a look at what Michelle, Christine and Paige have cooked up for their Eye Candy this weekend.

Amazing patience and how her hands must hurt from all that detailed sawing.
