the fantasmagorical world of mister finch…

mister finch is a man after my own heart…

not only does he begin each day with copious cups of tea, but he also loves listening to the sound of rain, rummaging for vintage finds & working alone, often into the wee hours of the night…

if this was a profile on a dating website my interest might be already somewhat peaked…

but there’s more…

namely, the fabulous fairytale creatures that mister finch brings to life from the depths of his one-man, yorkshire-based studio…

armed with a sense of whimsy & inspired by mother nature, mister finch lives in a parallel universe all of his own making…

a world wherein velvet-winged moths coexist happily alongside oversized snails… where foxes resplendent in their evening attire hang with hares adorned with botanical balaclavas…

if ever there was a clandestine encounter between alice in wonderland & dr doolittle i suspect mister finch might be the resultant love child…

when he’s not busy designing & sewing his hand-made creations, this self-taught textile artist is happy foraging for fabrics: be it velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress, vintage aprons, faded tapestries or discarded oil paintings, all are fair game…

& it’s this wonderful array of rescued materials & repurposed trinkets which gives each of his creations their individuality, authenticity & charm…

enchanted? be sure to put mister finch’s etsy shop on your radar, but don’t be too disappointed if you have to wait for stocks to be replenished…

it would appear mister finch has more than a few admirers…

  1. Oh! I must have one of those foxes. I want to save it for my future child. They are so beautiful! How amazing that he uses remnant fabrics from such interesting places. It really gives each item a story!

  2. As a lover of anything handmade, I’m finding Mister Finch’s work really beautiful and special. I’m imagining his hands toiling away on all these tiny details – A labor of love, for certain. I would find doing this type of work really therapeutic.

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
