My carving and sculpting skills are so non-existent that carving a tiny wooden block from a significantly larger one would take hours of tears and swearing. It’s when I see artists like Randall Rosenthal, who was able to carve blocks of wood to look like extremely lifelike sculptures of dollar bills, newspapers, and other paper […]
What do you get when you combine architecture, clothing, and furniture? I am sure a thousand and one answers can be given to that question, but if you are artist Tracy Featherstone, you’ll say “wearable sculptures“! Truth be told, I admire Ms. Featherstone’s creativity and imagination. Even in my weirdest most creative moments, I would […]
QR codes are the new barcodes, and they have gotten popular rather quickly. From QR codes in tombstones to QR code tattoos – I thought we’d seen them all. Apparently, I was wrong. I just discovered a really cool wooden QR code sculpture, which says a lot about its creator, German artist Elena Belmann. Forget […]

Where does scrap metal goes when it dies? Technically, scrap metal is already dead, I think, as it is supposed to be the corpse of previously useful things. Then again, as the old saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. In the case of French artist Edouard Martinet, however, scrap metal is the […]
One might think that an Optimus Prime sculpture without the all the colors will be nothing more than blah, but I think that the creation of Atti and Michel de Kok will change your mind about that. This ice sculpture is quite representative of the ice cold calmness and nerves of steel that I associate […]
Talented artist Paul Pape makes his living crafting three-dimensional sculptures on a custom-order basis. Most of his sculptures are for video game customers, and as you can see here, he’s done a lot of Miis and Xbox Live avatars, as well as some Sackboys and WoW creatures. But his latest item is so cool, it […]
Now bacon fanatics can try to get a unique bacon item for their bacon collection; a Kevin Bacon bust made out of bacon and bacon bits. The life sized sculpture of Kevin Bacon’s face was created to be auctioned off on Ebay for a charity cause. Another surprising and unorthodox art piece, although can art […]
