I discovered the work of Pollaz (a.k.a. Paola Colombo) through Schmancy recently and was completely overcome with how charming and wonderful her creations are. So overcome, in fact, that I promptly made one of her pillow faces and embroidered oven gloves my very own. (The latter was supposed to be a housewarming gift for some friends, but its looking doubtful that I’ll be able to give it up.)
I also really love the way she present her work in photos and the play between installation and craft.
Check out her flickr for lots more wonderful work.
