New Quilled Designs from Natasha Molotkova

You might recall that just last month we were introduced to the work of Natasha Molotkova. Recently she sent me images of her newest designs... each one is nothing short of fantastic.

quilled beetle

quilled matryoshka doll

quilled gymnast

quilled grapes

This last design isn't brand new, but after Monday's post on cursive lettering, I can't help but feature the double-edged script Natasha used to create the word morning. Perfectly lovely!

quilled coffee cup

I can picture a print of this piece as wall decor in coffee shops and kitchens, and I bet the inspirational gymnast would appeal to young athletes in the form of a bedroom or dorm room poster. By the way, all of Natasha's quilling is done by hand, not digitally.

I loved the beetle, then I scrolled down and could not stop ooohing and aaahhing and then the grapes, just amazing. I love how she layers 2D with 3D, the different shades. Just stunning.
