Kitty Egg Crayons

These little cuties have been individually custom-molded from nontoxic wax crayons. Their faces are then lovingly hand-carved into their egg shaped bodies, one egg at a time. They are ergonomically shaped for little hands, although they are great for all ages. They stand on their own and will bring smiles during your waking hours. Buy here.

” I focus on pulling a story into a single image through emotion and situation without completely losing the integrity of reality. Hopefully by the end of one of my pieces I’ve left enough space for the viewer to be able to participate.” – Vanessa Prager

Bubbletecture M is a kindergarten designed by Japanese studio Shuhei Endo Architect Institute. Located in Shiga, Japan the Maihara Kindergarten is surrounded by a newly developed residential area. The structure consists of concrete boxes between each of the rooms and a wooden roof that ties them together. The shell-form roof is made of triangular continuous surfaces; its structural strength and geometrical consistency permits great freedom in designing of the necessary spaces. This structural system uses 2.5 meters wooden beams and hexagonal metal fittings, factory-made and only assembled on the site. the integration of the wooden trusses and concrete boxes is geometrical but varied, a structure with rich in expressive effects. ‘ (via Designboom)
