Eszter Burghardt is a Canadian-Hungarian artist based in Vancouver BC, Canada, who uses colored wool and light to create miniature landscapes of exploding volcanoes, glaciers, mountainous fjords and streaming rivers.

The messy and tedious act involves cleaning, dying, felting, and knitting the raw wool. To create her artwork, wool from Icelandic sheep farms and old wool sweaters were used. To dye the wool, Kool-Aid was used to make the dioramas. She then captures the images using a macro lens. Eszter Burghardt uses as much natural lighting as possible and do not use any computer based added effects.

Her photographic and sculptural work published and exhibited across Canada and she was selected as a winner for the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward Festival in 2010 for her original work in her "Wooly Saga" series.
