Saturday Waves

illya
The sea is a captivating subject for artists because of its inconceivable size and raw power. Clark Little, a surfer and photographer based in Hawaii, loves to get up close and personal with the sea and its power, taking breathtakingly beautiful photos from within powerful waves.

Talented Washington-based artist and furniture-maker Greg Klassen’s beautiful river- and lake-like desks and tables straddle the line between furniture and art.

Due to his relationship with a local sawmill, Klassen has access to pieces of raw wood, which means that he can make use of its natural forms and beautiful imperfections for his creative furniture. These organic forms lend natural power to the “rivers” and “lakes” on his tables, which are completed with custom-cut panes of glass and look much like features on a topographical map.

Blue Wednesday

illya

Believe it or not, these fairy tale-like fields are not digital images of our most vivid dreams, they are real photos taken at a park located in Hitashi, Japan. The Hitashi Seaside Park covers an area of 190 hectares and has a variety of flowers blooming throughout the year. The most famous ones, Nemophila, thrive and bloom in the spring, particularly in April, creating a truly mesmerizing view at the Hitashi Seaside Park of 4.5 million blossoms covering the fields.

The Hitashi Seaside park has become widely known for these baby-blue-eyes, attracting so many tourists that photographers have to photoshop them out of the fields, as it is impossible to take a person-free landscape photo.

Not at home this evening but I took time to post this...

Chalk-drawn by a local artist David Zinn, this little fellow has been playing on the streets, peeking out of wall cracks, riding snow waves, and putting smiles on passers-by ever since he first appeared in 2008.

Favored for its translucency and durability, marble has been the material of choice for sculptors beginning with the early Greek masters. And their chisels have been used, most typically, to carve an idealized human body but also to create massive pillars and architectural forms like the Supreme Court Building or the Washington Monument. So these mini-architectural interiors come as something we’ve never quite seen before. The intricately carved creations are the work of British sculptor Matthew Simmonds, an art-historian-turned-stone-carver. Inspired by his academic background and, later, his work in helping to restore important historic monuments (in particular, Westminster Abbey and Ely Cathedral) Simmonds began creating these fascinating, empty marble interiors after moving to Italy.

Sydney-based artist Ben Young creates astonishing glass sculptures that look just like ocean waves. Young puts layer upon layer of hand-cut laminated glass sheets and then hand-carves them into waves and other water forms.

The artist turns the glass sheets into water by hand, drawing, cutting and crafting them from the beginning to the end without the use of any computers. The planning and sketching are the longest and most difficult parts.

Amazing Friday

illya

Many of us have only a vague recollection, if any, of what it’s like to type with a real mechanical typewriter: the tactile clicky sounds, the concentration, and the vintage feel. This memory no longer has to be nostalgic, because now you can buy a typewriter-like keypad that connects to your PC or tablet through USB.

This vintage-style modern keyboard, called Qwerkywriter, was created by game developer Brian Min, who is financing the production through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. It has 84 chrome-accented round keycaps and an integrated stand for tablets, a perfect tool for people who would love to feel like writers from the past.

Most doors are hopelessly mundane, but they don’t have to be; they can also serve as meaningful symbols of portals between worlds or between different aspects of our lives. When we set out to create a list of beautiful doors around the world, we were surprised to find just how many truly amazing doors there are out there that have been decorated with beautiful craftsmanship and artwork.

Wednesday Food Art

illya
If you think this is food, you’ve been fooled – all of it was made from clay and all of it is tiny. Kim, an artist in the USA, makes these miniature food sculptures for dollhouses as a hobby, using clay, a needle, colored chalk pastels, a rock and a razor blade. It takes 1-3 hours to complete one item, depending on the complexity of the miniature.

Leo Burnett, a prestigious international advertising agency, created a simple 3-image optical illusion advertisement campaign for Jeep in France that merited a gold award for press at Cannes Lions.

At first, the 3 images in this ad campaign might look like nothing special – just dark animal images on a burlap background. You have to flip them over, however, to truly appreciate the agency’s artwork. Each image can be viewed as a different animal depending on which direction you view it from, and these two coexist without interfering with each other.

The agency explains that the ad “invites the reader to return to the announcement to discover an animal at the other end of the world. A nice invitation to travel.

Photography is all about the relationship between light and perspective, and nowhere is this made clearer than in these hilarious two-faced photos, where the subjects and the shadows that they cast tell two (often very different) stories.

In an amazing study of masterful craftsmanship and delicacy, Hillary Fayle, a student of embroidery, has created a series of leaves that have been cut and embroidered with exquisite and delicate decorative patterns.

She starts by coating each leaf in a non-toxic preservative that stiffens them up and protects them. Then, she cuts them into various forms and embroiders them or simply embroiders onto their uncut surfaces.

South Dakotan sculptor John Lopez creates life-sized scrap metal sculptures with a uniquely Western American twist. In his hands, old discarded farm equipment is recycled into sculptures of iconic creatures from the American West like a bison, a horse plowing a field, or a Texas Longhorn.
