Gunpowder Painting

0

Wyoming artist Danny Shervin uses gunpowder to make his art.  Yes, he does exactly what you are thinking, places each individual grain of gunpowder in a design, and lights it on fire.  I understand that hours are spent hand placing each grain, what I don’t understand is the prices he’s commanding for his art.  I guess … Continued

Wooden People

0

Peter Demetz is an Italian sculptor of an unusual medium – wood.  I’d say that wood is potentially more difficult to work with than marble or stone.  Wood can split very easily, and if it isn’t dried well, then the entire thing can get ruined.  Marble and stone can do the same, but at least … Continued

The Last Bookstore

0

I’ve gotten tons of slack before for posting what I thought was cool art made of books.  What are the chances that this entire bookstore that makes art, and hallways, and secret rooms out of old books (which you can buy for $1) will go by without a comment?  Well, considering there’s been few comments … Continued

Smoky Bottle Art

0

Jim Dingilian has an unusual canvas for his art.  He uses the soot from burning candles to paint the inside of glass bottles.  Then, he uses Q-tips, needles, or skewers to etch away that smoky layer and create the works of art seen.  I really like the way he used the natural color of the … Continued

Rope Trees

0

\ Brazillian artist Janiana Mello and Daniel Landini unwind rope to create these beautiful leafless trees diagrams.  Some are pretty neat, some are pretty abstract.  The one with the giant root is kind of in the way and more arty than necessary.  I like the blue one above with the tangle of roots below, very much … Continued

Ebru Art

Ebru Art, also known as Paper Marbling is an old (though, how old is up for debate), method of creating decorative designs by floating paints on water and then swirling them around.  I could try and explain it more, but I think  it’s better if you just watch the below videos.  Seeing is easier, trust … Continued

Join the Puff Club

0

The internet never ceases to amaze me.  No, there’s nothing perverse about this club, it’s really quite simple actually.  It’s a live stream of a box with a balloon in it that real people can inflate, 1 puff at a time.  Until the balloon hits the knife off to the left side of the box that … Continued

Pen Refill City

0

The first question I have for this guy (or more importantly, the people who donate to him), how much are you writing that you go through entire pens?  In my entire life I don’t think I’ve used up all the ink in a standard ball-point pen.  I, like the rest of the world, usually loose … Continued

Glass Turning.

0

Jack Storms is a artist of glass, however he uses a lathe to turn his glass.  He uses a mixture of leaded glass, dichroic glass to give it color, epoxy to hold it together, and an external layer of optical glass, to make it look like the color inside is floating.  He came up with … Continued

Secret Wooden Rings

0

The above looks like a tiny interesting snow globe right?  Maybe an odd shaped thing.  Well, you would be wrong.  It’s actually a ring.  A hand made wooden ring with beeswax and jewelry resin making the designs inside.  Canadian jeweler My Secret Wood has created these works of art.  The two I’m showing here are … Continued
