 Transform your humble twigs into sticky showpieces. Achieve the above effect by wrapping strips of bright fabrics from twig-tip to twig-tip and stitch in place. Did someone say sculptural? Devestatingly handsome when propped in a vase or scattered free-form about the home. Keep this in mind for an alt. Christmas tree option……….

Melbourne based artist Daniel Dorall makes miniature mazes. The above is a teeny tiny 5cm x 5cm x 5cm! Dorall’s mazes trap humans and animals in strange and scary situations. Beautiful, frightening and funny, I think Doralls miniatures are destined for greatness!
