Shark Attack Porcelain Mug

Photobucket Photobucket The first few sips from this innocent looking porcelain mug are pretty tame, but as you continue drinking things get a lot more exciting. What's that lurking in the murky depths of your morning coffee? HOLY CRAP, IT'S A SHARK! Yep, the bottom of this 3-1/4" tall, porcelain mug features the imposing head of a great white shark lunging up at you. A classic gag that's both funny and disconcerting. Buy here. Photobucket

Vally Nomidou

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket ' The exhibition, entitled “Let it bleed“, is a series of life-size sculptures, as well as a series of fragments, such as heads or hands, all made of paper. The works depict young women and young girls. The female figures impress with the naturalness of their features and poses, the perfection of modelling and the beauty of volume. Paper, Nomidou’s dominant material, now becomes a key component in her creative process, inextricably linked to painful and systematic research on the technical level, as well as on that of aesthetic integration. The artist respects her material and, although it is cheap and vulnerable, she does not “adulterate” it by using other materials. Moreover, she does not use it as a shell, an encasing to cover a necessary inner structure by providing a fake, idealised skin. Nomidou builds and shapes her works from the inside out solely using paper and paperboard. The internal cardboard frame is built with a vertical and horizontal grid in order to be able to support and render stillness in her sculptures, while also ensuring balance in contraction and expansion. The homogeneity of her material allows the equilibrium in the behaviour of the interior and the exterior, and thus ensures its duration. ' (via Le Zebre Bleu) Photobucket Photobucket

Sleep-Drunk Vademecum

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket The body of SLEEP-DRUNK VADEMECUM is made up of a large set of rounded painting formats. It is an open project still in process that started in the middle of 2008. Medical instruments, high precision techonology, scientific devices, anatomical models, clandestine laboratories and human representation become the object of study and thought. The bizarre represented objects reflect a mixture of past and future, and an ambiguous clinical atmosphere flows in them. On many of these painted surfaces, a soft cool-cold gradient isolates the represented elements and gives a non-gravitational character to the compositions. The project is based on a choral visual basis. The groups of images altogether represent the discourse, giving great importance to the different parts that give sense to the work as a whole.

Inception Chair

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Taking the chair archetype and placing within it chairs that are progressively smaller. Each chair has hand cut grooves on the inside edges of its seat frame as well as notches in the seat back. These grooves range from 1/2” wide to 1/8” wide. The mechanism works so that the pegs fit into the grooves of the chair one size bigger and slides into place so that the horizontal edge between the chair seat and back line up. The simple mechanism allows the chairs to be taken apart and put together with ease. Designer: Vivian Chiu Photobucket Photobucket
