Finch takes vintage fabrics and materials and then turns them into amazing works of flora and fauna. He turns fabrics into such as moths, mushrooms, rabbits, spiders and hybrid lifeforms. He usually takes inspiration from British folklore to design weird and wonderful sculptures from discarded curtains and table cloths, old wedding dresses and other materials that would otherwise end up in the bin.

Finch said in a statement on his blog that making things is important to him and he uses his talents to get things out of his system. He loves nothing better than going out and looking for materials that he can use in his work. He loves picking up materials and fabrics that were lost and forgotten. He likes to work with recycled materials rather than new as he says that they add charm and authenticity to the sculpted pieces.
