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.
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.
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.
Anyone have favorite cake artists?
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.
Conjuruer’s Kitchen makes the most majestic macabre morsels I’ve seen.
Yes, this is a cake. They all are.
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.
I WISH I could attend this opening tonight.
