Book Of Art January 18th, 2011 Books of Art by Isaac Salazar, a simple idea well executed. found at ffffound Grain & Gram — The New Gentleman's Journal / Blair Sligar, Woodworker “My name is Blair Sligar and I build furniture and sculpturefrom salvaged and local materials.” lair’s own words are concise, functional, and to the point. All things that you find in his work. Built to be used, loved, cherished, and kept, all of Blair’s pieces have an old-world sturdiness that you rarely see in today’s all to frequent buy-destroy-repurchase cycle. He and his wife have a governing rule they live by where they buy and own only what they love, no matter what the item. I started woodworking pretty crudely. I also spent a lot of time in metal working shops and a few cabinet shops. Those times really stand out to me because I learned a lot of things in a job that I really didn’t like. I also think working in a few metal shops was good because all of the skills used in building things in metal are so transferable: layout, planning, design, process of work, etc. The small fine woodworking studio that works from it’s own designs is a somewhat current idea.

Objetos con Vidrio Immense paper cut tapestries by Tomoko Shioyasu (click for detail) Japanese artist Tomoko Shioyasu was born in Osaka in 1981 and majored in sculpture at the Kyoto City University of Arts. Her immense floor-to-ceiling tapestries are meticulously cut by hand from enormous sheets of paper using utility knives and soldering irons. Her work evokes some of nature’s most complex creations: the organic patterns of cells, the flow of water, and the forces of wind. How these are hung without tearing seems nearly impossible. Her latest work, “Vortex” (first two images) is currently on display as part of the show Bye Bye Kitty!!! (via hyperallergic, photos via karrie jacobs, kashya hildebrand, and scai bathhouse)
