This is some expert needle felting (a technique I’ve been meaning to learn). She brings adorable little morsels to life!

Eric Standley’s paper cut sculptures are breathtaking.

From afar, these pieces look almost like stained glass windows. But upon closer inspection that are layered with intricate patterns of color and form, delicate and gorgeously intertwined.

There is a grace to this work…a flow that makes design seem almost alive.

Aganetha Dyck: Interspecies Honeycomb Sculptures

Posted in creatures, nature, sculpture with tags , , on February 21, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

The idea of “interspecies sculpture” captured my attention (as long as it is entirely respectful of all species involved). Here we have the provocative juxtaposition of popular human design and apiary architecture.

Aganetha Dyck who for years has been working with the industrious insects to create delicate sculptures using porcelain figurines, shoes, sports equipment, and other objects left in specially designed apiaries. As the weeks and months pass the ordinary objects are slowly transformed with the bees’ wax honeycomb.

aganetha-more

Born in Manitoba in 1937, the Canadian artist has long been interested in inter-species communication and her research has closely examined the the ramifications of honeybees disappearing from Earth. Working with the insects results in completely unexpected forms which can be surprising and even humorous.

I couldn’t find much written info about Neli Josefsen, but she is responsible for this i-can’t-believe-it’s-a-cake creation.

This is edible!

Anyone have favorite cake artists?

Jessica Joslin: Animal Anatomy

Posted in anatomy, sculpture with tags , on February 4, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

The inimitable Jessica Joslin has a new series of fantastically fabricated animals!

From her bio:
The creatures that populate Jessica Joslin’s world are intricate fusions of bone, brass, antique hardware and other scavenged treasures. Infused with the Victorian era’s passion for natural history and arcane technology, these creatures reflect both the real and the imagined animal, the living and the dead.

Through careful observation and intricate construction, they re-imagine the animal kingdom, bolt by bolt, beast by beast. They are a nod to the Wunderkammer of yore, and the Victorian predilection for invention and exploring science through the collecting of naturalia. The precision of the engineering conveys a sense that these beasts are anatomically plausible, and the spark of life is simulated through limpid glass eyes, engaging the viewer silently and directly.

I wish this was part of a Christmas ornament set. I would love to decorate with these:

I am always thrilled to see Jessica’s new work. Give the whole series a look HERE.

I find it very interesting…the crossing of gag-worthy subject matter with delicious confections. To eat or not to eat…

I was gifted a Conjurer’s Kitchen hand-sculpted white chocolate raven skull by the lovely and talented Tonya Hurley…it’s too beautiful to eat. I keep it on display.

Adam Dougherty: Witch Hazel

I loved the Looney Tunes episodes that featured Witch Hazel. Adam Dougherty (aka Kreature Kid) made this incredible life size model of the screechy sorceress.

I am not zombie or unicorn obsessed…but even I must admit that this was pulled off stunningly well.
