Felt & Food Geology

I love the photos of Vancouver-based Canadian-Hungarian artist Eszter Burghardt, who has used wool and lights to create volcanic environments, fjords, and glaciers or food to make land and seascapes.

It's not often I see felting or baking about science. She mentions her residency in Iceland. I think you can see the influence of the dramatic landscapes and geology of the world's youngest, growing baby of a continent, on her work. Colossal


  1. These are absolutely magnificent! Have you seen Jeremy Miranda's artwork? He has some pretty swell volcanoes, icebergs and greenhouses.

  2. I love how the small-scale models 'read' as large as volcanoes and landscapes and the unexpectedness of the media.

    I've seen Jeremy Miranda's etsy, but you've inspired me to go look up his portfolio site. Thanks!

  3. Hi All,

    I thought you might be interested to know that you can buy affordable limited edition prints of Eszter Burghardt's work at an online art gallery I started (prints start at $25 in an edition of 250). We LOVE Eszter and love the work she is doing! Here is a link to her photos that we have available:

    Fjord of Wool

    Wooly Mud Pot

    Happy Collecting!

  4. That's great! Thanks for letting me know. I'll add a link to the post. I'm glad to see artists remunerated for their work, and it's nice that people can have a print of her photos so affordably too.
