Apocalyptic Sculptures by Kris Kuksi Kris Kuksi is a 36-year-old sculptor from Missouri, USA. His sculptures are created out of discarded toys, old mechanical parts and other tossed away items. The sheer amount of detail within is work is truly incredible. He is able to create entire worlds that almost appear frozen in time. According to Kuksi’s artist statement, his work is “feeling that he has always belonged to the ‘Old World’. In any case, Kuksi’s mindblowingly detailed toy sculptures remind us that trash and discarded materials can be refashioned into nearly anything we want.

Brian Marshall Re-purposed Adoptabots Sculptures Delaware-based middle school teacher, Brian Marshall creates the Adoptabots sculptures from found and re-purposed materials. For someone who does this on the side, Marshall has an extensive collection of Adoptabots.Adoptabots are robot figures created from discarded daily objects, which are now ready to set on with a new life. Designer Brian Marshall decided that products which had ostensibly completed their desired taks did not deserve to rot in the landfill, so he decided to give them a new life in the form of artistic figures which maintain their original form, but also take up an entirely new shape which can all be seen on his Flickr page… they can also be purchased via his Etsy online store.13 more incredible work of Adoptabots after the jump...
| Asian Wedding Photographer | Hindu Wedding Photography | Indian Wedding Photographer | Scrap Metal Furniture: Incredible Industrial Art & Design Bob Campbell, also known as Stig, as is much a metal sculptor as he is an industrial artist or furniture designer. Using scrap metal parts from cogs and wheels to chains and treads, he crafts recycled one-of pieces and furniture sets that use a creative combination of manufactured pieces and built-from-scratch shapes. He incorporates leather, wood and other industrial materials as needed but metal is always at the core of his work. He has sold his unique metal furniture pieces to all kinds of people through various venues, ranging from high-end luxury retail stores to music festivals, street markets and his own personal private gallery. His work itself is open to interpretation but his unique style and curious material choices certainly set him up to be seen as existing somewhere between traditional arts and crafts and modern mechanical engineering.

Little flying civil servant Paul Nicklen’s “Polar Obsession” (9 Photos All Photographs © Paul Nicklen / National Geographic A young polar bear leaps between ice floes. Barents Sea, Svalbard, Norway. These photographs are from Paul Nicklen’s recently released book, Polar Obsession (National Geographic Focal Point, $50), the culmination of 15 years of work photographing wildlife in the arctic and Antarctica. The book celebrates the arctic and Antarctic ecosystems and discusses the urgent need to halt global warming, which threatens their existence. A kittiwake soars in front of a large iceberg.

It Took 84,000 Pennies, But Michigan Mom's Giant Coin Really Makes Cents Make a penny, leave a penny. That's how one cash-strapped Michigan woman obtained the 84,000 pennies she used to construct a gigantic replica of a 1-cent coin, which won her artistic acclaim and allowed her to share her inspirational story. Wander Martich says she only started building her massive coin after she was forced to pinch pennies when she went through a divorce, lost her home to foreclosure and lost her job in 2006. That's when Martich's daughters -- ages 6 and 9 -- gave their mom the loose change they had been saving in their piggy bank. Martich put her kids' pennies in an empty water jug, which she continued filling with $20 of pennies from each paycheck after she found a job. Last year, the Grand Rapids, Mich., resident decided to use those pennies to make some real change. "Art was the only way I could tell a mass of people my story," Martich said in a statement through Ripley's Believe It or Not, which acquired her huge coin. Wander Martich
