The Bankers Lamp – Revisited is probably what all bankers lamps dream of becoming one day. A creation of Cory Barkman (previously), the lamp follows the style of the artist, that is, an old world look that is somewhat steampunk-ish, but mostly elegant, stylish, and functional.
These mechanical sculptures are built using a wide array of metallic objects, which diversely range from spark plugs, springs and gears to spoons and forks. Bulagarian artist Dimitar Valchev creates a variety of sculptures that represent insects, birds, monsters and other forms of life.
UK based Italian artist Paola Bazz reworks and re-uses printed paper to create three dimensional collages that have a three dimensional effect. The choice of printed paper comes as a metaphor for everyday life where a fair amount of information of our lifestyle and culture lives, and of course, the printed paper is a medium that has tremendous power of effect. It is full of text, images, faces, human figures, and the mighty power of communication that it represents.
Here at Randommization, we love nothing more than doses of serendipity, and these lamps seem so random at the first glance, they’re just right up our alley. Atlanta based artist Roger Thomas created this set of lamps using upcycled vintage appliances and various other items he found. Built quite imaginatively or with a seemingly eccentric flair, these lamps don’t fail in developing interest. Available from the artist’s Etsy shop.
A house in Houston, Texas not just has its dwellers making good use of beer, but the house itself is quite a connoisseur of beer cans. It was once owned by John Milkovisch, who having been brought up during the great depression had a couple quirks, one of them being a reluctance to throw things away, especially beer cans.
Right off the bat, we have to say there is nothing scary or creepy about these faces. Using hands for hair and random assorted parts for faces is perfectly okay. “Did you see that woman sculpted out of baby doll heads?” Yes I did, don’t remind me of her. The art of Freya Jobbins involves painstakingly placing and sticking numerous doll parts to create an impression of a humanoid, though created from hundreds of unrelated parts.
Puma is all set to get to work on its environment credentials with a new line of products that promise to have low impact on the environment. Dubbed InCycle, clothes and accessories in the line have been made with the use of recyclable and compostable materials.
Manuel Villanueva Pérez joined up a few disposable razors to fashion a tripod that does look kind of stable. We like how this can be an eloquent money saver, with a wee bit of creative exercise.
Throwing around a little weight can have its own uses. Heavy metal clocks have an air of simple, brute beauty about them. They are made from salvaged metal brought from yards south of Downtown Los Angeles. Created by Stephen J. Payne, the project is currently seeking backers/pre-orders on Kickstarter.
French artist Mark Sparfel finds old, discarded furniture that is well beyond its prime, and gives it all a brand new purpose in these artistic animal sculptures. The work is executed in an excellent manner, it does not seem that these elements have been repurposed; rather, the elements merge so well they might as well have been created for the express purpose of these sculptures.
