Ravendark Creations is the work of Arend Smith. Here you will find amazing one of a kind, quirky creations such as:

The Cheshire Cat (I think this is a model kit design, actually. I’d love to make this!)

Most sculptures are polyclay (often inspired by his wife’s art!), but some are available as resin kits so you can bring these fine creatures into your own home and take part in the creation process.

VeroS: Petraoleum Marine

Posted in craft, sculpture, sea with tags , , on August 13, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I always enjoy photographic evidence of new species discovered (the Earth is just an endless bounty of surprises, isn’t it?). My favorites are always the delightfully alien sea creatures. These sculptures could very well fall under that category.

Tulle isn’t just for prom and wedding dresses. Benjamin Shine uses this gossamer netting to construct large scale portraits with incredible dimension.

He can even show the movement of dance…

Or the complex variegated detail of aging human skin.

Seymour

The enigmatically named “Seymour” is actually the work of Melbourne based artist Peter Kelk.

I was first drawn to his work via his excellent lowbrow sculptures.

But his portfolio also contains a number of pen and ink drawings, and paintings.

Invictus Designs: Tooth Fairy

Posted in craft, macabre, sculpture, toys with tags , , , on August 4, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Upon hearing the words “Tooth Fairy,” most of us probably conjure up sweet, fluttering little fairies. Invictus Designs has a different idea:

Yes, kids…all the times you thought this was visiting you in your sleep…

Image Odyssey: The Dish Ran Away With the Spoon

Posted in absurd, art, craft, sculpture, vintage with tags , , , , , on August 2, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

My kindred spirit Cat referred to Spoon Theory today in a kind comment about my health. I immediately wanted to symbolically give her a special spoon, and the best way I could think to do so was with an image search for the most bizarre renditions of the final Hey Diddle Diddle lines.

Even as a child, I thought this Mother Goose nursery rhyme was truly ridiculous. I guess all nursery rhymes are. But if you need a refresher for this one:

Turns out anthropomorphized plates and flatware inspire a wide spectrum of artistic interpretation, both vintage and modern. Take a look!

Cybele Young

Posted in craft, paper, sculpture with tags , , on July 31, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve posted many images of gorgeous paper cutting over the years, but Cybele Young has her own spin on papercraft: constructing miniature exact replicas of real world items, and juxtapozing them in a kind of dialogue.

This tiny curling iron is brilliantly titled “It’s Worth It This Time.”

She achieves such precise detail that it’s hard to believe these are made of paper.

I wish I could see a time lapse video of one of these pieces being made. Wouldn’t it be great to witness plain sheets of paper turn into this before our eyes?
