These figurines are so cute and disturbing at the same time. They were created by Debra Broz using found figures and changing them into these weird wonders. She began training as a china restorer when she got the idea. I found them featured in the www.impossiblemag.com. Enjoy.
This saturday is the Pittsburgh Flea and I am going to give it a go. I pulled ideas for how i would like my table to look, but its going to be trial and error. I have hang tags, packaging (brown bags that i stamped my logo on), chalkboard signage, vintage crates and hardware boxes from my 78 year old neighbor. I'm making scarf pillows, greeting cards and pulling together years and years of hunting and gathering lovely things. I hope it is a success. http://pittsburghflea.com/
Chocolates with attitude...Denmark-based Bessermachen DesignStudio plus Henrik Konnerup equals heaven. The chocolates were produced by Konnerup, 12,000 pieces of artisanal chocolates were each handmade and individually wrapped. Flavors range from chocolate with lavender to dark chocolate with curry and pistachio. For all 12,000 pieces, 12 different designs were created. Each box reflecting the identify of the chocolate. Chocolates with Attitude is being hailed as a collector’s item. I want some now!
Wow, Wigs made from plastic wrap, give leftovers a whole new meaning. They were originally designed for a Tiffanys & Co. window display by Kate Cusack, then re-used in this photoshoot by Kristiina Wilson. One year for Halloween, I embellished a wig with plastic wrap to be the Snow Miser, these put that to shame. These are so weird and cool I cant stop looking at them. Enjoy.
Beauty and sadness. These are a series of iron sculptures representing animals that have been endangered due to iron extraction in Brazil, which is apparently one of the biggest producers of iron ore. Each sculpture is the exact size and the weight of the real animal. Check out Marco Ugolini for more of his work. www.jesuismonreve.org and http://vimeo.com/17406761.
