If you are looking for something to spice up your Halloween party, the creative candle and candle holder presented here might be the thing you are looking for. Named “The Jack“, it is actually a ceramic base (in shape of skull, rabbit or deer) in white or black color that you “fill” with a candle in the shape of rabbit ear or deer antler or the brain. Both the candle holders and candles had to be optimized to ensure that the scented wax would flow through the eyes the way they wanted it to. Coming with 5 scents: pure cotton, lavender, vanilla, cocopalm or cacao. Imagine yourself put the candle on fire and let the scents permeating through your space – while the brain melts and drips out of the eyes like the skull is crying. Sounds a bit creepy? But it is perfectly cool for Halloween. Moreover, if you are not the candle person, you still can use these cool holder as plant pot. It is definitely something to make you desk a bit cool.
Drosera, commonly known as the sundews, is one of the largest genera of carnivorous plants, including more than 194 species that lure, capture, and digest insects by using glands that cover their leaves. In photographer Joni Niemelä‘s gorgeous images, these individual droplets shine with exquisitely-speckled details, adding a mystical feel to the hungry plant. Below are some photos of Niemelä’s photo series about sundrew and you can find more on your website.
“Computer Component Bugs”, is another great example of recycled art, which are beautiful miniature sculptures of winged insects created by UK-based artist Julie Alice Chappell using circuit boards found inside discarded electronics. To build a tiny insect like below, Chappell needs to break down the circuit borads and find propery components based on their pattern then patiently put them together to create vivid bugs. When asked why she used material like that, artist said “The recycled bits of cultural refuse that are woven throughout my work represent a direct encounter with the excesses of modern living highlighting the dangers of planned obsolescence and e-waste in the environment. The work displays an aesthetic beauty whilst offering a socio-political discourse, attempting to reclaim waste and the destruction of the natural world, in the beauty of visual art.”
Made by “merryme”, the mysterious artist behind the DAINTYme store on etsy, these enamel three-piece rings will drive your finger wild. These clever designed rings can be worn on one finger to form an animal, like the cat, deer or fox ring or worn on three finger to make it look like the animal is doing something fun, like the squirrel after an acorn. With the holidays approaching, this is definitely something worth keeping in mind when you start brainstorming unique gifts.
