greatest hits & a giveaway: by bunny with a toolbelt!


what inspires you artistically & creatively? what would those inspirations look like visually? in this fun series, (please see the others here) ... i’ve invited some wonderful artists to share with us 4 images of inspiration in their artistic life, something of an interview in images! the guidelines were basically this: choose 4 visuals (something like your creative-stimuli *greatest hits!*) that you feel most inspires & expresses your art or craft today. for some, it might be a person, place or thing; a material; a pattern; a colour; a sound or song, etc. it might be a photograph, a drawing, a scan, etc. i’ve tried to leave it a bit open-ended so that we might better glimpse into these artists' motivations and their amazing, raw talent! today i’m delighted to present the next in the series : greatest hits with bunny with a toolbelt and a GIVEAWAY, too!
......................................




need a little pick-me-up?
ready for spring?
in need of an instant party & lots of smiling?
ready to be inspired?

me too!


welcome to the wonderful, whimsical world of bunny with a toolbelt.

just a few moments spent gliding thru artist Hilary Pfeifer's magical worlds and i know you'll be transported ... to a delightful and wonderful place!
i've been a longtime fan of this handmaking genius, and as a gold medal winner in the handmade olympics, i was delighted to see the grand enthusiasm the world has for her innovative work, especially those fabulous *instant party* creations! { read on to see how YOU can WIN one, woohoo!}

her etsy boutique is filled with her upcycled wood masterpieces: delightful characters of all shapes and colours ready to cheer any day! custom wedding toppers, grinning sweeties for all occassions, something to light up your desk or windowsill or heck.. just life in general!

and in case you, like me, can't get enough of her delightful visions, take a little break and travel to her pretty worlds
here, her vivid worlds here, and her lovely words here




and now... let's see what's inspiring Hilary... her 4 images ....

................


1. I have always been enamored with the diverse work of Alexander Calder. From his huge stabiles and mobiles to his mid-century modern jewelery to the circus he created for his grandchildren, he really was the best artist of the 20th century in my book.





2. The Beatles Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover


This album came out the year I was born and it fascinated me as a child. I know this image led to my love of collage. When I was a child, I emulated this image many times with magazines, now I think of my mixed media sculpture as a 3-d collage in many ways.


..................





3. I have had this image on my wall for over two decades--I got it from a National Geographic. The way I remember the story went was that the issue was about covered bridges or something like that. The photographer on that assignment had just spent a bunch of time taking pictures of something upriver, and then they turned around and saw this man who had been working on this project for hours. It makes me think of so many things: building work from multiple components, being contemplative in nature, and finding ways to be creative with what you have on hand.

....................








4. Making people smile or laugh when they see my work is part of my mission, so I spend a lot of time looking at Japanese Kawaii culture! When I was a little girl, I loved Hello Kitty, but now I'm leaning more toward the cool stylings of Afro Ken.



.........................

  10. I can't decide between "Instant Party" and "Bluebirds"...the first because I really need something fun for all of the birthdays we celebrate over here...and the second because I have Spring on the brain and they are so stinkin' sweet.

  75. My favourite fine art exhibit of Hilary's is Works on Paper - Costa Rica

    ReplyDelete
  76. I visit Hilary's shop at least once a week for a little shot of loveliness! I am so excited! I especially love her little elephants with the birds on them and in her shop right now, I think that "oh happy day" is probably my favorite! It's so bright and cheery and makes me smile just looking at it. Oh, if all our days could be filled with the joy you see on that elephant! :D

    ReplyDelete
  77. Vertical Garden is one of my favorite installations of Hilary's. The concept of an urban garden has always inspired me because of the pull that nature has on us. Many people find a way to have a little bit of nature surrounding them no matter how difficult or small a space they have. Evidence of how nature replenishes us.
