Welded Sculptures from Found Objects

Portland-based sculptor

Mock says of his work:

“I am intrigued by the challenge of creating an entirely unique piece from an eclectic collection of discarded objects. Giving these old, common items a new and extraordinary life as one sculpture is an artistically challenging yet gratifying process. This type of work is also designed to be highly interactive and prompt viewers to question the reality of what they see. Audience reactions fuel my motivation.”

String Art – Take 12

etsy – 1000+ images about string art on pinterest

You call a painting in three parts a triptych. I guess this would be a quadratych? Anyway, I love the fact that this was broken up into 4 parts, then mounted on a shared background.

 

I love the color and action in this one.

I find this one fascinating. I looked up the word, ‘filography’ and found out it means ‘thread sculpture.’ I guess this is a subgroup in the string art medium. The patterns here are mind-boggling. I love this.

String Art – Take 10

I just love the creativity in people. You give people several different colors of string, some nails, and a hammer. If you gave them to ME, I MIGHT come up with an interesting color combination, and MIGHT be able to make a simple, cartoony, MAYBE recognizable shape. Each of these people SEE something in their minds and are talented enough to recreate it on wood – in this case – but such DIFFERENT subjects, styles and color. Aren’t they amazing?

Mr. Crayola
Don Marco, the Master Crayola Artist

Don Marco was born in Northern Minnesota in the late 1920’s. His interest in art was evident even before starting school. As a young adult in the Army Air Corp, he began his life’s career in Air Traffic Control, which continued until his retirement from Honolulu International Airport in 1973. Much of his spare time was spent as a professional artist.
Before retirement, Don started developing a technique to create fine art, using Crayola Crayons. Shortly after retiring, he published his first print. Living in Southern California, his work was in demand, including commissions from Burt Reynolds and a one-man show at his Dinner Theater in Florida …

It’s hard to imagine these are done with crayons!

These are Cookies? – Take 4

ec9

These incredible cookie designs are so beautiful, you won’t want to eat them! Created by pastry chef and artist Judit Czinkné Poór from her cake-decorating shop in Ajka, Hungary, these complex designs are helped by Judit’s skills as a porcelain painter.

I’m in awe of the creativity and talent of Judit Czinkné Poór. These would all be a great thing for my diet. I couldn’t imagine eating ANY of them. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing these.

Towel Critter Art – Take 1

When I first started this blog, I displayed a bunch of wonderful towel animal art introduced to me by my sister-in-law, Mary Lou, when she and my brother-in-law were on a cruise. I was completely blown away and delightedly shared the images. Then I found out the hard way about image limits and what happens when you delete what you think are old images, and lost the whole section.

I found some new images yesterday, again smiling like an idiot every time I find another one, so I’m going to start that section again and share them with you. :0)

I love gourd art!  It seems that the sky is the limit on what one can do with them. I can’t decide if I like the brightly colored and highly varnished ones best, or the ones that combine carving and painting – giving the gourd wonderful texture – or ones that have been completely cut out and then painted. I simply drool when I see the creativity and talent that goes into these!

The softness of this one appeals to me. I want to reach out and pet the dog. I’ll bet his skin would be warm from sitting in the sun.

I love the color in this and the starkness of the trees versus the lush sunset and water.

 

 

This little guy just melted my heart. Great choice of subject, plus real talent in making him come to life.

I love the way this artist has gone from an almost pointillism technique for the lion’s head to a free form, glorious color watercolor!

I love the wonderful explosions of color, the soft edges of the flowers, and the background. Maybe in my next life I can learn to paint in this manner.
