Saerom Yoon / Crystal Series

 

Saerom Yoon is an artist based in Seoul, he studied furniture design at Hongik University with a focus on woodworking. In his Crystal Series, Yoon took that knowledge and translated it into acrylics with colorful gradients. In the end its optical illusion that creates the beautifully blended hues. The surface of the acrylic is dyed and once the pieces come together magic occurs.

Jim Osman

 

The word that comes to mind when I view Jim Osman‘s sculptures and installations is this – balance. In physicality, in use of color, and in viewing. Nearly all of Jim’s work uses wood, paper, paper, and hardware for stability, in the end reminding me of the most stunning game of Jenga.

Lane Walkup

 

These elaborately sculpted metal hangers by Portland artist Lane Walkup just make me so happy! Inspired by the fluidity of minimal shapes and the chemistry behind metalwork, you can see just how much special attention has been paid to fun details and quality structure. And YES, you can actually use them as hangers if you so wish. Each one is the size of a regular hanger and is coated with a light plastic for functionality purposes. (Lane also designs jewelry.)

Lauren Clay

Many of Lauren Clay‘s sculptural installations look like you could pull them off the wall for a quick snuggle. And while they’re perfect on their own, Clay sometimes pairs them with beautifully created spaces that make them all the more complete. But these pieces are only the start of a laundry list of sculptural styles – take a look.

Massachusetts-based Mariko Kusumoto‘s textile sculptures are something to behold. She uses translucent polyester fabric to create orbs that enclose small objects, the result is purely delightful and wearable. That’s right, some of her pieces function as either a necklace or brooch.

Karine Jollet explores the anatomy of the human body step-by-step in her exquisite soft sculptures. Old bed sheets and shirts, embroidered handkerchieves and secondhand fabrics, all are cut up and the fragments sewn together to create each work of art.
