Realistic Fabric Sculptures by Lisa Lichtenfels.

These realistic fabric sculptures are the creation of artist Lisa Lichtenfels. The soft sculpture artist creates the inner frame from wire shaped by heavy felt, muscles made of wadding and the realistic skin tones are achieved by using nylon. After graduating with majors in Illustration and Film from Philadelphia College of Art, she became an apprentice animator at Disney Studios. It was during a presentation at the Philadelphia College of Art given by Judy Jampell, that she came across the use of fabric for anything other than clothing. And it was while developing three-dimensional figurines at Disney Studios, the idea to use nylon came back to her. Soon she left Disney to explore the potential of these techniques. She creates realistic sculptures with a wide variety of subject and the individual figures range from less than 5 inches to life-sized figures of over 5 feet tall. She works in a studio in her home in Springfield, Massachusetts. Check the rest of her work here - gallery.
