New York City-based artist Zoë Williams creates awesomely strange felted wool sculptures of spectral creatures that look like species you’d encounter if you were magically dropped into one of Hayao Miyazaki's films such as Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke. Most of Williams’ sculptures are created using white wool, which heightens their otherworldly feel. She speaks to this on her website with an apposite quotation from Melleville’s Moby Dick:
"Symbolize whatever grand or gracious thing he will by whiteness, no man can deny that in its profoundest idealized significance it calls up a peculiar apparition to the soul."
Williams has been creating her singular sculptures for over seven years now, so the pieces pictured here barely scratch the surface of her unearthly oeuvre. Be sure to visit Zoë Williams’ website, Flickr page or Instagram account to check out more of her fantastic felt creatures. Although most of her work is shown in gallery exhibitions, she also has an Etsy shop where she sometimes makes her pieces available for purchase.
