Dutch artist Ferry Staverman makes these wonderful trees out of recycled cardboard and thread! Rag & Bone, which is where I discovered them, muses that he would like to live in an entire forest of these trees, and I wholeheartedly agree!

I recently came across the work of Ross Bleckner, and I can’t stop looking at his paintings! I really enjoy them – they take me to some other world… He has quite a portfolio! You can find out more at his website.

Craziness! La Machine, a group of French engineers, created this massive spider and placed her in Liverpool UK for a few days… The photo gallery on their site has pictures of the whole exhibit, with lots of cute shots of peoples reactions. Pictures above by Matthew Andrews.

Laura McCafferty makes me smile. The English artist creates these illustrations with a mix of fabrics and hand-stitching.
She has a great collection of work on her site, divided into catagories like travel, clothes/accessories, and ladies/hairdressing/market. Check out her web site!

I am loving the beautiful photographs of Jean Shin’s artwork. The capturing of discarded everyday objects (like broken umbrellas after a rainstorm, or the ends of altered pants) is inspiring and I think speaks to the issues of waste, recycling, disposable culture, etc. But also craft.

And I also love these photos of materials she’s taken at the maket. They remind me of photo’s we’ve taken around the fp office!

Su Blackwell creates these beautiful sculptures out of old books, mostly ones she finds in second-hand book shops! Each sculpture is created using paper only from the book with which it is shown. You can see more of these amazing pieces on Su’s website. There is also an old post on My Love For You (where I got these great pictures!) that has a real nice interview of Su.

glorious eggs

Franc Grom uses a little tiny electric drill to put literally thousands of holes in real egg shells. Fragile and amazing – he generally puts between 2,500 and 3,500 holes in each egg!

Under the names Lizette Greco or grecolaborativo, the Greco family of southern California create these awesome stuffed animals! Using the drawings of their son and daughter, Mom and Dad create the plushies, representing the drawings as accurately as possible. It’s a family collaboration! They make up little stories for each of the animals too! You can see everything they have made right here, and if you like something so much you want to have it for yourself, they also have a little shop!

If you’re looking for a good browse this afternoon, I strongly urge you to check out Rachel Papo’s website. All the above photos belong to the Israel-raised photographer, and her website holds many more delicious photos. The way she captures people is mesmerizing.
via Lost – a really cool blog!

polish pavillion

I’m loving this design for the Shanghai Expo 2010 by Polish architects Wojciech Kakowski, Natalia Paszkowska and Marcin Mostafa. The design is inspired by Polish folk art paper cutouts.
There seems to be some controversy in the comments on Dezeen regarding how or if the physical building will turn out. I personally just enjoy the concept and the images!
thanks to black eiffel for the link:)
