These piñata-inspired sculptures by US artist Amy Boone McCreesh are created in 3D form using a range of materials. The intricate tactile sculptures are inspired by the illustrious, brightly colored flowers and textures used in Mexican culture.

The unusual sculptures almost look like the floral wreaths used to mark occasions like deaths and marriages. Although these are currently on display in an art gallery, I think these pieces would look great as a focal decoration for a party.

The Baltimore-based artist says on her sites that she takes inspiration from "celebratory and funeral displays in various cultures" and aims to "explore decoration and human relationships" through her artworks. Amy Boone-McCreesh currently lives and works in Baltimore. She was awarded the Baker Artist Award for 2012-2013.
