The teacup creatures are my favorite, but you will also find wall art and specimen jars. Take a look!

These gorgeous creatures are made of old Nintendo consoles! (Hopefully broken ones…I love the idea of re-purposing).

I love how these creations capture the energy and movement of raging seas.

These, in smaller scale, would make amazing wedding cake toppers.

Isobelle Ouzman’s altered books are spectacular three dimensional creations that breathe new life into discarded volumes. Light seems to shine from within them, and draw us down a path inside the pages.

She states:
Every book that I alter was found by a dumpster in Seattle, a recycling bin, a thrift store, or was given to me by someone who no longer wants it. Rather than have these discarded books sit out in the rain or in some store to gather dust, I’m striving to make good use of them. I love books very much and would never carve into one that was valuable. I just want to give them a new life and a second chance to mean something again.

As to how I make these – glue, an x-acto knife, Micron pens, watercolors and lots of love.

Her illustrations are equally magnificent, so check those out too.

Strange Remains Week: Memorial Glass

Posted in art, death, sculpture with tags , , on March 20, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

A number of websites now offer hand blown glass sculptures that incorporate cremains.

Memory Glass creates orbs that resemble fancy paperweights (not to diminish the concept), using ashes in one of a kind designs. I love how this one looks like DNA.

Depending on the keepsake you wish to order, a number of options must be selected for each piece.

*For Memory Glass Orbs & Hearts, our handmade wooden stands with LED light clusters are available to light up the pieces from the bottom.
*Memory Glass Pendants include a Black Leather Cord at no additional cost, but you are welcome to choose a Sterling Silver, or 14k Yellow or White Gold chain to hang your pendant.
*Memory Glass Touchstones include a black 3d Suspension Box to display your touchstone proudly.

The Edge Art Gallery goes a step further and not only makes orbs, like this psychedelic swirl…

…but functional objects!

Graphic artist and painter team Anya Stasenko and Slava Leontyev make tiny porcelain creatures with a wild array of finely detailed whimsical designs.

Some have strange scenery painted on them…

Others have what look like the natural scales and markings of creatures from a colorful parallel world.

And some contain the cosmos!

Light Figurine

Light Figurine caught my eye with stunning phoenix sculptures. The blue phoenix appears floating in flight.

How gorgeous are these grand fire birds?

But if you want something completely different…how about a snake in a purple hat?

Or a snake in a straw hat? Until now, I’d never given much thought to the potential existence of chapeau shops for snakes. But the natural world is full of surprises, isn’t it?

This one is simply called CAT SCIENTIST.
