i meant to post this a while ago but i guess my great grandfather was an insomniac and really good at woodcraft
he worked on this violin when he couldn’t sleep
allllll those little sticks are matchsticks just glued together
he cut them and burned them at different heights to get the diamond pattern
WHAT THE FAUCK
NO THAT JUST
This incredibly lifelike little unicorn, who looks ready to scamper, cavort, and make all of your dreams come true, is a sculpture, entitled Aura, created by R. Wake, an artist who goes by the name Indigo-Ocean on DeviantArt.
Aura stands 12” tall and was made using copper tube, aluminium and steel wire armature, Padico Premier stoneware clay, taxidermy glass eyes, recycled mohair, rayon flocking, silicone ears/facial features, resin, and polymer clay.
We can’t look away. We know this is just a photo and that the photo is of a sculpture, but we can’t shake the feeling that this awesome unicorn is about to blink.
THE PLASTIC CUTLERY SCULPTURES OF SAYAKA GANZ
Sayaka Ganz - Driven by a combination of my passion for fitting odd shapes together and a sympathy toward discarded objects, I create animals from thrift store plastics.
I am always collecting plastic objects. In my basement I have 30 plastic bins full of color sorted plastic objects, and when I have enough of one color I make a decision for what to make. Right now I am very interested in depicting animals in motion, so I research different gallops, strides, flight and dives of various species and find reference photographs to help me understand the motion as well as the anatomy of the animals.

Ellen June is an artist from Canada who uses air-drying clay, wire, glaze and acrylic paint to create these amazingly beautiful sculptures of fantasy animals. Each sculpture is handmade and painted with no more tools than fingers and a paint brush, completely unique and produced in a fluid and intuitive manner. With inspiration derived from animal physiology and a love of the fantastic, grotesque and absurd, each sculpture is completely unique. She’s absolutely incredible.
