How would you feel if you find some food look like real but actually made of wood when you are quite hungry. That is pretty much how I feel when I saw Seiji Kawasaki’s wooden food. The Japanese wood carving artist creates some ultra-realistic looking food made out of wood, such as shrimp, fish, potato chips, croissants, toast and chocolate. Of course, only carving can’t make food sculpture look like below. The other reason of why those wooden food are so realistic is because of Kawasaki’s painting skill. He took quite time to paint his wood work with such details and make them looks like real food.
These beautiful ice cube sculptures blow our minds of any ice cube we can imagine. Featured in in ads for the Suntory, a Japanese brand of whiskey, these stunning ice cubes come in various shapes, from Batman and deadmau5 to Statue of Liberty and astronaut. It is not simple to create ice cube sculpture like that. It was first designed via Autodesk 123D app, useful for turning images of things into blueprints for 3D printers. Then a CNC router is used to carve the designs into the ice block. The ad company (tbwahakuhodo.co.jp) who made the project, added that sculptures are finished when “a touch of chilled whiskey polishes the surface of the ice and gives a beautiful shine to the sculpture.” Let’s first take a look at these crystal looking ice sculptures and don’t forget to watch amazing whiskey ads which use the ice cube at the bottom.
Not sure since when, pencil tip carving has become a trend. We have featured many amazing works about pencil tip sculpture and today we will introduce you another talented artist Jasenko Đorđević who has developed an incredible craft carving intricate sculptures from this unconventional material. Using X-acto knife and tiny chisel, the Bosnian artist creates their overall form, implies texture, and even carves tiny words into the thin stick of graphite. And the result is stunning. It is really impressive to see Đorđević transforms the tips of pencils into small works of art, such as flowers, animals, and portraits, all of which have to be magnified to fully appreciate the minute details.
It looks like pencil is not only drawing tools any more since more and more artists choose it as their art canvas. We have featured many creative pencil carving works on our site and today we will bring you another set of stunning pencil tip sculptures by Salavat Fidai. The subjects of his work range far and wide, if a little close to pop-culture. Star Wars notables Darth Vader and master Yoda make appearances, so does Bart Simpson, as well as such 3D animated characters like Rango and Wall-E. Like Fidai’s work? You can find more on his behance page.
