Wearable Art

I love to the blur the lines between what we wear and what we live with - Body Decor and Interior Decor!

The work of Li Xiaofeng blurs the lines even more.  He crosses the dividing line in a serious way by taking decorative items, making them into clothing and then displaying them as art!

He uses shards of traditional Chinese ceramics to make clothing. Gorgeous!
His work here graces the entrance of the The Opposite House Hotel in Beijing.

Read more about him and his work here , here and here!
