Contemporary Artist using Gut

I am amazed at the incredibly different ways artists are using gut as a medium.


This installation by Martha Ross Raisanen sets my heart on fire.

I love the old bottles and the textures.  The feeling that you are uncovering some ancient treasure cocooned in mystery.

Love this delicate yet strong cocoon shape by Pat Hickman


I also found pieces I could hardly believe were made of the same material I have used.
