Kerry Howley, an art student, from Cambridge, England, is currently all the talk in the art world with her weird art. She has her intricate necklaces made from human hair.
Her brainchild of creating a necklace from human hair was inspired by people’s dislike to cut hair she expressed. Hair is usually regarded as a very important part of the human body and is worn with pride, but once it has been cut, a person feels a little disturbed.
Through her art, the Middlesex student said ,” I hoped to create a delicate balance between the viewer/wearer’s feelings of aversion and attraction.” She wanted to see if she could make cut hair attractive once again to all.
The main material for Howley’s masterpieces was provided by one of her mother’s friends, a Japanese woman with hair down to her waist. The lady only cuts it once every five years, and when she had 30 cm cut off the bottom, she gave it all to Kerry. The 23-year-old art student used broken saw blades to cut and weave the strands of hair into abstract shapes. She used wallpaper patterns as her guide. Get this it took her 60 hours working on each of the five delicate hair necklaces she has created!
