Zazu Faure/Los Angeles ...handcrafted animals from recycled materials

Zazu's motto is summed up in one word..."repurpose". Using all the little scraps she hoards away, she's inspired by nature, architecture, fashion design, fine arts & misshapened vegetables :D She uses her scraps like a sculptor uses clay. She sees her job to strip down to "essential" forms & employ minimal moves to convey a creatures characteristics with simple sculptural forms & clean lines, so evident in her Etsy shop. Zazu is a LA based building designer focusing on residential remodels...as she explains, practicing architecture with a lower case "a". More creatures can be seen on her Flickr site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/zfla/sets/72157623898662762/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/zfla/sets/72157605755463097/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/zfla/sets/72157605755258839/ Please mark your calendars for (2) upcoming shows: May 15th (LA area), 9am-5pm...
