BEAUTY: Soft Sculpture--Cecile Dachary

French artist Cecile Dachary works in many mediums including ceramic, but her fabric, crochet, and embroidery work is utterly fascinating because of its unconventional subject matter. She uses the human body as a springboard for studies of our internal organs and bacteria that can live in or on us. It is beautiful and startling work.

Top to bottom: hanging bacteria; bacteria in a jar; single bacteria; cushions embroidered with human internal organs; organs and vascular system under a cloche; organs in three cloches; Peau (Skin); le Potager des Organes (The Vegetable Garden of Organs)

Look at her website for examples of her work in other mediums:
