British artist Peter Clark uses old stamps, maps, love letters, labels, buttons, sewing patterns, and various papers that he has collected to create collages of everything from trophies, to animals, to clothing. This particular series features various breeds of dogs, ranging from the French Bull to the Dalmatian. He starts by drawing the outline in felt tip and then carefully selects from his paper and fabric stash for the right materials, as well as colors, to define tonal effects and other features in his art objects. Look closely and you will notice details that connect the dog to the medium. For example, a Scottish Terrier might be formed out of maps of Scotland, another breed may be created from strips of an old paper dog license. [source]
The impressive creatures that form the scenario of the Alice in Wonderland film were artistically sculptured in gold and diamonds in an extraordinary collection developed by H.Stern in partnership with Disney. Strange roses, colorful mushrooms, bird from beautiful garden, the Cheshire Cat, Jabberwocky and other wonders of the world through the mirror served as the inspiration. For each ring, it comes with two sizes: Extraordinary and Human dimension. Love the mushroom and rose ones! Relly special and unique!
Hina Aoyama, a Japanese artist living in France masterfully cuts details into sheets of paper to create these super fine, lacy, and fragile artworks. With just a simple pair of scissors, Aoyama is able to create super fine lacy-paper-cuttings like small butterfly wings, the fine script of a handwritten letter, and the details of a lotus flower. With intense patience, attention to detail, and a steady hand, Aoyama’s distinctive technique results in these hand-cut masterpieces, created across the course of hours and sometimes months. Her designs truly amaze me; I’ve never seen such delicate and perfect paper cutting on the scale of Aoyama’s work, and I’m particularly impressed with the cursive text cuts shown below. Just can’t imagine how much effort and patience needed to get that fine script of a handwritten letter.
