We may have just found the perfect little white sundress to wear this summer. There’s just one problem, it’s made from marble.
Meet Alasdair Thomson, a European sculptor, who carves magnificent and extremely life-like pieces of garments from stone. According to his website, his “The Identity Collection” consists of six objects made from stone but were made to capture the lightness of fabric. Each of the works are modeled after a real shirts and dresses that have been donated to Thomson from friends and family.Thomson has also worked on sneakers and t-shirts. The resemblance to real articles of clothing is uncanny, and through his Instagram account, you can see just how much detail and work goes into each piece. We particularly love the name of each of the items. They all have a feminine name and it’s fun to think about just who wore that dress or shirt and what importance it had to them.
His website states that Thomson earned a degree in Art History in 2004 from the University of Edinburgh. He also has a diploma in sculpture from Senese Scuola Edile in Sienna. We’re so excited that we came across his work while scrolling through Cosmopolitan Magazine. We can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.
Scroll through the photos below to see his amazing work, and be sure to head over to Cosmopolitan for other cool stories.
