Ricky Swallow

November 23rd, 2009

Ricky Swallow is an Australian artist who also makes sculptures. These 2 pieces are made of Jelutong, a tropical hardwood. His style reminds me of Fabio Viale, who uses marble for his sculptures.

Veneer

November 6th, 2009

Levi van Veluw is a Dutch artist who uses his head as a canvas. His first pieces that I discovered were his Ballpoint series. I was also quite impressed by his Light series, where he covered his head with light generating foil. But this time he didn’t use his real head for these Veneer pieces. He used a cast of his head in almost exactly the same position as in his previous work. I’m curious to see how his work will evolve.

Downside Up Table

October 22nd, 2009

This is the Downside Up Table by Claire Ferreira, its name actually describes the production process. A bio-reson called Jesmonite is poured into a hollow wooden base with some slits in it. The resin can then escape through those slits and form the table top. It’s that simple.
