Realistic Animal Lollipops and Sugar Sculptures by ‘Amezaiku’ Artisan Shinri Tezuka

Now you’re in luck thanks to a new candy shop in Tokyo called Ameshin that offers traditional Japanese amezaiku, a form of artisinal candy making that dates back to the 8th century when the edible objects were offered at temples or given as gifts. The lollipops and other confectionary beasts are made by the shop’s owner, 26-year-old Shinri Tezuka, from a mixture of starch and sugary syrup (somewhat like taffy) that results in a translucent, almost glasslike candy. Tezuka shares more of his latest creations on the Ameshin website and Facebook page. Portrait Sculptures, Sculpting Instruction & Marble Sculptures b. SEAN E AVERY. In the Shadows.

While attending school at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, artist Kay Sekimachi was struck by a quote from her teacher Trude Guermon-prez: “Try to make something with the simplest of means.”

Skeletal Leaf Bowl Sculptures by Kay Sekimachi

Over the span of her sixty-year art career Sekimachi took the words to heart as she rose to the forefront of contemporary fiber art in the 60s and 70s by creating challenging artworks with extremely limited means. Leaves, hornet’s nest paper, grass, shells, and linen constitute many of the materials in Sekimachi’s repertoire. Via the Smithsonian: Sekimachi uses the loom to construct three-dimensional sculptural forms. In the early 1970s she used nylon monofilament to create hanging quadruple tubular woven forms to explore ideas of space, transparency, and movement.

Among her more recent works are these delicate bowls made from maple leaf skeletons. MARI KASURINEN. Rodin Museum. Robot Fossils [photo intense] I've been working on this series for about 6 months now, and for whatever reason I was a little hesitant about showing them off until they were all done.

Robot Fossils [photo intense]

The original concept was to create full 1:1 scale humanoid robots in correlation to a little storyline I had brewing in my head, but I didn't have the space, time, or money for such a huge endeavor, and since I am not really a fan or collector of miniatures I decided small but 1:1 scale robotic animals would be the next best thing. Additionally; somewhere on the other side of my brain I have been wanting to re-create the cover of the Alien 3 dvd but on a slab of stone simulating a fossil effect very much like the common Ammonite fossils. When the robotic-animals concept was conceived I saw it as an opportunity to combine the two projects into a much more interesting and original concept.

Geometric Sculpture of George W. Hart, mathematical sculptor

Hart As a sculptor of constructive geometric forms, my work deals with patterns and relationships derived from classical ideals of balance and symmetry. Mathematical yet organic, these abstract forms invite the viewer to partake of the geometric aesthetic. I use a variety of media, including paper, wood, plastic, metal, and assemblages of common household objects. Classical forms are pushed in new directions, so viewers can take pleasure in their Platonic beauty yet recognize how they are updated for our complex high-tech times. Because my works invite contemplation, slowly revealing their content, some viewers see them as meditation objects. This page shows some of my own favorite pieces.
