Yet More Stuff I Found While Looking Around

April 24th, 2013 by Cobwebs

As in previous editions, here’s a bunch of images I’ve run across which I want to share but might not be able to hang a whole post on. Several of them have no attribution, so if you happen to know the source for any of these please leave a note in the comments. (Click to view larger.)

Bat Ouija Board

Bat Ouija Board

This appears to be hand-stenciled, but I can’t find a source. I love that the planchette also features a hanging bat.
Get Out

Get Out

Next time I do any home renovations, I’m gonna be awful tempted to try something similar.
Gorgon Chandelier

The photo is all over the place, but I can’t find any attribution. Apparently this hangs in a courthouse somewhere in Europe. Which would make showing up for a criminal trial sort of intense.
Coin Purse

Coin Purse

Sculpture by surrealist artist Nancy Fouts. It’d be interesting to see if a real coin purse could be made in a similar way, using a set of false teeth.
Spine Dress

Spine Dress

Here’s another one that’s all over Pinterest, with nary a source to be found. This is entirely awesome and would be an interesting embroidery/fabric paint project if you had sufficient time and ambition.
Painted Rock

Painted Rock

Snarky folk art amuses me.
Halloween Cake

Halloween Cake

I love this mosaic sculpture. It’s by Michelle Legler; there are more photos here.
Spider Street Art

Street Art

This is apparently in Hamburg somewhere.
Spiderweb Sofa

Spiderweb Sofa

Special commission by Jimmie Martin. The site has lots of other lovely pieces, too.
Steampug

This just makes me ridiculously happy. It’s available as a print or T-shirt here.

    Gotta make some of those rocks and give them to my best friend to hide in with all the other “whimsically inspirational stones” at her work. We hate them. These ones make us smile.

    Well, now I have to go to Hamburg.
