By Peter Archer, a Hobbit-inspired getaway for a most devoted Tolkien fan, situated in the Pennsylvania countryside so just a little way from the Shire. Designed with elements taken from some of Tolkien’s original drawings –– I can scarcely imagine a more perfect weekend house to escape to.
By Maico Akiba, each small wooden animal acquired from souvenir shops in Tokyo, make up the body of work, Sekai – Japanese for ‘world’, each animal then has miniature worlds grafted onto their backs to create wonderful little scenes.
By Kaarina Kaikkonen, the Finnish artist creates these huge installations using second hand children’s shirts. The larger pieces resemble the bones of a large ship, the tonal changes of colour that progress from the centre of the installation to the ends, give it an interesting aesthetic.
By Kevin Champeny, the New York based artist sculpts, molds, casts, and finally places each beautiful object in place to creature these amazing mosaic works. This work, What Remains, consists of 35,000+ hand-cast urethane flowers to create a skull.
By Catherine Nelson, I find myself mesmerised by these astounding, meticulous compositions from thousands of tiny details, congregated to form these individual little magical worlds. Each one a contained planet with it’s own individual environment and colour range.
