We all know Constantin Brâncuși as one of the most important sculptors of the 21st century who had a grand contribution in developing the aesthetics of modern sculpture, but today I want to approach his work differently and talk about Constantin Brâncuși, the designer.

I was so delighted to look over Jennifer Collier‘s work and I thought it would be a great idea to share it with you. The British artist creates beautiful household objects by using a variety of crafting techniques and paper patterns. The remarkable objects are throughly shaped to resemble their real appearance.
