Splice

 

Splice is a collaborative project between photographer Andrew McGibbon and art director Cassandra Fumi. Each piece of ice art is only temporary – an act of self-destruction on display for only a short amount of time. Beet juice, puzzle pieces, toy cars and more filled each block before being photographed and dissipating entirely. What’s more, each print is a unique one of a kind, meaning there is only one print available for each piece.

Erika Sanada / Odd Things

 

Erika Sanada‘s Odd Things sculptures are beautifully disturbing. Her strange, creepy creatures have extra body parts or small deformities that set them apart while also resembling adorable animals that you wouldn’t mind snuggling up with. I love the detailed skin and musculature that Sanada captures so well.

Damien Hirst

 

Damien Hirst is known for being a somewhat controversial artist, but his The Anatomy of an Angel Carrera marble hewn sculpture caught my eye months ago and remained in the back of my mind. Hirst’s fascination with beauty, religion, science, life, and death are all come together as the feminine figure is dissected down to different levels of organs and bone.

Jaime Keiter

 

Jaime Keiter‘s one-of-a-kind geometric sculptures use clay as canvas, a series of paintings collaged from individually hand crafted and glazed porcelain stoneware tiles create the eventual wallhanging. Her process begins with cutting geometric and organic shapes from clay slabs, underglazing patterns and textures, and then finishing each tile with a variety of different mid-fire glazes. The collages are then pieced together to create small geometric sculptures and larger grouted works.

Eva LeWitt

 

Perhaps you’ve heard of legendary artist Sol LeWitt, but did you know he has a very talented daughter named Eva LeWitt? Some of her latest work is this installation made from polyurethane foam, latex, and plastic that’s entitled Untitled. Once installed the 13 pieces resemble overlapping curtains with a variety of shapes, colors, and textures giving each its own personality, while the materials they’re made from both hold them up and weigh them down.

Reality Hand Hooks

 

I saw these Reality Hand Hooks in person at a museum gift shop earlier this year and fell for them hard. The series, designed by Harry Allen, is inspired by the beauty of everyday objects. Four casts of the his hand provide a unique take on the idea of a shelf, vase, and hook that can be used in any number of ways. Choose from Bestow, C’mere, Grab, and Offer.

Amber Cowan

 

Philadelphia-based artist Amber Cowan uses a process which involves flameworking, blowing, and hot-sculpting recycled, up-cycled, and second-life glass (usually American pressed glass from the 1940s to 1980s) to create incredibly detailed sculptures that are brimming with intrigue. She sometimes removes individual details from pieces to use on their own and other times create her own details by melting old pieces down. Talk about time-consuming, but man is the outcome worth it!

Jourdan Joly

 

Ice cream isn’t generally something I have a craving for, but this summer I’ve been wanting it like crazy! So much so that the boyfriend and I are on a mission of sorts to try as many local ice cream institutions as possible before the season is over. Jourdan Joly‘s whimsically fun ice cream sculptures capture the real deal perfectly – just don’t get confused and try to take a bite!

Linda Lopez

 

I love the colors and textures of Linda Lopez‘s sculptures and objects! The pieces that look as though they’re covered in hairlike clay are referred to as a “dust furries”, and Lopez’s style is so organic that you can’t help but want to reach out and touch them.
