I like gummy bears as much as the next girl, but I never once have considered making my clothes out of the little guys. Designers Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi have different ideas and they looked at a dress by famed designer Alexander McQueen and decided they were going to do their own version entirely of gummy bears. The dress weighs 220lbs (twice as much as the model I bet) and was made by hand gluing the gummies to a vinyl sheet.
• His art speaks for itself. Fishes, reptiles, pigs, bunny´s etc. often with movable parts made out of industrial rasin and rasin clay.
This is a series of sculptures made from shards of glass. Each piece was crafted by Artist Marta Klonowska , who I assume does NOT share the same fear of broken glass as I do. How does she manage to put the pieces together without slicing her hands open and bleeding out, I’ll never know!
Some figurative sculptors carve their artworks from unforgiving stone while others carefully morph the human form from soft blocks of clay, but artist Jonty Hurwitz begins with over a billion computer calculations before spending months considering how to materialize his warped ideas using perspex, steel, resin, or copper.
They say that patience is a virtue, but the amount of patience that it would take Nikolai Aldunin to sculpt these microscopic masterpieces should qualify him for sainthood.
Taxidermy is one of those art forms which can be quite controversial, both as a question of taste and for ethical reasons ranging from animal rights to conservation. However, it’s hard to dislike these charmingly imaginative characters by sculptor Carl Turner. Channeling the spirit of the late, great Dr. Seuss, he’s created an animal menagerie of mostly cute animals – which look much more filled with life than stuffed for preservation. It’s well known that Dr. Seuss created his own taxidermy-like busts , many of which were characters springing right from the pages of his books; and Turner continues in that vein.

balloon dog (red), 1994-2000 high chromium stainless steel with transparent color coating 307,3 x 363,2 x 114,3 cm image © designboom jeff koons fondation beyeler, basel, switzerland on now through september 2nd, 2012 opening in coincidence with art week basel with support from hugo boss and mercedes benz, the fondation beyeler presents an extensive exhibition of the american artist jeff koons , documenting his artistic development over the past thirty years of practice through the lenses of three milestone series.

'banality', a period begun in 1988, includes traditionally crafted sculptures in porcelain and wood, that nonetheless take as their subject ironic confrontations between pop culture icons and baroque artworks.

On 2 July 1942, most of the children of Lidice, a small village in what was then Czechoslovakia, were handed over to the Łódź Gestapo office. Those 82 children were then transported to the extermination camp at Chełmno 70 kilometers away. There they were gassed to death. This remarkable sculpture by by Marie Uchytilová commemorates them.
