Beautiful Flowing Garments Made from Layer of Plywood

Those elaborately designed garments presented in this post were made from layers of Finnish birch plywood by artist Ron Isaacs in a trompe l’oeil fashion. Starting from wood, then cut, layer and paint, Isaacs made these highly detailed “architectural clothing.” Each piece merges three recurring subjects found in most of his works: vintage clothing, plant materials (sticks, leaves, and flowers) and found objects. Combining trompe l’oeil painting with master wood carving, the sculptures appear ready to move in a gentle breeze as they morph into natural elements.

Super Realistic Baby Animal Plush Toys

When you just look at below pictures and without reading the title, you probably think these are some adorable baby animals. However, they are actually lifeless plush toys created by self-taught sculptor Lee Cross who has mastered the craft of creating pose-able plush animals that look convincingly life-like.

Starting with a pose-able skeleton, then Lee wrap it in soft stuffing and cover them with hand-painted synthetic fur. Each animal is impressively constructed by Cross entirely by hand without the use of molds. Besides those adorable baby animals, Lee also created some phenomenal fantasy beasts which you hope these beautiful creatures actually existed on the world.

Pop Culture Icons Made of Aluminum Cans

Who said aluminum cans should only go to recycle bin when you’ve finished drinking their contents. With creativity, someone builds can sculptures and someone creates pop culture characters. Japanese artist Makaon takes these would-be discarded cans and turns them into those famous pop culture icons like Super Mario Brothers, Batman, Pikachu, and even Buzz Lightyear.

To build these works, firstly, Makaon need to find cans with right color which matches the characters he want to create. For example, Coca Cola provides Mario with a bright red hat while Carlsberg Beer gives Yoshi his green sheen. Then he takes small pieces of the aluminum and bends it to form the shapes. Even though these characters are angular in shape with a rigid-looking, but it is still quite cool and fun to see them.
