Red Hot Wooly Magma

June 25, 2012

Christopher Jobson

These photographs that appear to capture red-hot cracks in the Earth’s surface weren’t taken in Hawaii or Indonesia, but rather in the studio of artist Eszter Burghardt who uses wool and colored lights to create miniature natural landscapes including volcanoes, glaciers, fjords and rivers. See many more of her Wooly Sagas and a similar project using food: Edible Vistas.
