From the mind of Australian born Sonia Rentsch, a still life stylist and art director, we have this great collection of kitchen objects fashioned into various costumes and evening wear. I fell in love with her Weltanschauung, as so closely resembles my own; "To find beauty in everything." This series was photographed by advertising photographer Scott Newett, a rare creative mind in the superficial world of products and consumerism.

Her website begins with the appearance of a white feather, a twig I'm certain is an insect, a tooth that rots as the cursor hovers, and other interesting articles of nature that open up to parts of the website when clicked. Moki is a German artist shrouded in mystery and nature. Forgoing titles for most of her pieces, she explains her want of viewers to reflect their own personality without a filter or guide. “...more than animistic, it’s pantheistic. The structures of stones, the colors of their lichens… it’s a feeling of respect and appreciation relating to nature. I think sometimes it’s the longing to be a part of it – forming a unity to overcome the feeling of alienation – just as much it is the amazement of beauty and a desire to understand,” says Moki of her work in a 2009 interview with Erratic Phenomena. Take a look at her series of paintings, so intricately layered onto wood.

Qulling. The art of coiling and shaping narrow strips paper to create design has been in existence for hundred of years.  During the Renaissance, nuns and monks would roll gold-gilded paper remnants trimmed during the bookmaking process and utilized these to decorate religious objects as am alternative to expensive gold filigree. Later in the 18th and 19th centuries, young ladies in England turned this into a pastime who decorated tea caddies and pieces of furniture with paper filigree. Across the Atlantic it traveled with the colonists, who added quilling to candle sconces and trays as home decorations.
