Genius is a word that is thrown around all too often these days. But in this case it’s truly apropos.
I’ve featured Mr. Finch before, most recently his mushrooms for fall. But every time I go back over his site I find myself astonished anew by his most recent inspirations. Masked foxes perhaps in doubt of their own stealth, high-born snails with a regal air, and snuggly moths more pet than pest, Finch’s critters are full of personality and pluck. Exquisitely stitched from the most textured of fabrics, we related to them all the more because they are metaphors for the human characters in our own lives.
