Exposing Texas's Ungodly Heat, With Giant Melting Crayon Sculptures Blazes have been ripping across Texas this year, as the state endures its worst drought in history. To educate the public about wildfires, the National Ranching Heritage Center (NRHC) in Lubbock commissioned Tennessee artist Herb Williams to construct a smattering of giant, flame-shaped sculptures, some 8 feet tall, using 60,000 to 70,000 Crayola crayons. As time passes, the crayons melt and warp on the landscape, their slumped forms exposing the parched, blowy conditions that feed real flames. Unwanted Visitor: Portrait of Wildfire opened October 7 and already, as you can see in the photo above, the sculptures have liquefied significantly. Williams built Unwanted Visitor with a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts. “We were very excited about this because their budget has been cut so drastically this year,” NRHC’s Emily Arellano tells Co.Design.

Strange Sculptures Made of Discarded Clothes (15 pics) Chances are that if you ran into Guerra de la Paz's colorful sculptures in an art museum, you'd enjoy them from afar and then take a few steps closer. That's because the Cuban born American artists who make up Guerra de la Paz, Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz, create curiously interesting sculptures made out of old clothes. In fact, they originally took their materials from the waste bins of second-hand goods shipping companies in Miami’s Little Haiti.

Quilling - Turning Paper Strips into Intricate Artworks Quilling has been around for hundreds of years, but it’s still as impressive and popular now as it was during the Renaissance.

Later, during the 18th and 19th centuries, it became a favorite pass-time of English ladies who created wonderful decorations for their furniture and candles, through quilling. Basically, the quilling process consists of cutting strips of paper, and rolling them with a special tool.
