Simone Pheulpin: Sculptures textiles

Yesterday, i discovered the art made of textiles by the 70 year old french sculptor Simone Pheulpin.

The material she uses is very simple, just raw cotton bands that she gets from her native region of Vosges, situated in eastern France.
Those bands are unrecognizable once the piece is finished. 
Simone modifies its structure by folding tightly or loose and by bending the material upon itself.
The stacks retain their shape thanks to pins. and the pieces all look organic like fossils or landscapes.

Just beautiful... i love fossils and have several of them at home.
