Gunjan Aylawadi  Hand Cuts Thousands Of Paper Strips To Make Paper Carpets

I make paper carpet installations. I was inspired by my desire to do something new with a simple material like paper.This unique technique involves hand cutting thousands of strips of paper and twisting them tightly around a thin wire to get paper curls. I then glue them onto hand drawn patterns to make these works. The paper curls blend into one another and a sophisticated paper tapestry emerges from thousands of these connections. The technique is physically demanding but meditative and adds a layer of texture and visual interest to the works. These works are detailed and reward close attention. My aim for myself and everyone else is to perform the difficult act of slowing down, both in making and consuming and really appreciate the beauty in small details.    More info:

Drawings by Daan Noppen

Daan Noppen is an international artist mainly working in drawing and photography. He is best known for his realistic larger than life drawings of portraits and bodies. When looking closer at the works one finds mathematic equations in between the pencil strokes that relate to our reality. His drawings project past, present and future in the now as one image, a parallel reality that we normally cannot see with the naked eye. Follow him on @Tumblr

12-Inch Nails Turned Into Sculptures by John Bisbee

For nearly three decades, John Bisbee b.1965 has welded and forged 12-inch spikes under the mantra, “Only nails, always different.”

He uses nails as his sole medium to create geometric sculptures, organic installations, and unwieldy objects from thousands of nails that are hammered, bent, welded, or fastened together in a seemingly limitless procession of forms.

Glass and Light from Sidney Hutter, Master of Glass

Throughout the years, Sidney has created several series of art work.  His initial sculptures were developed when the windows of the John Hancock Tower popped out onto the streets of Boston in the 1970’s.  He obtained a supply of this glass and began creating large-scale sculptures using a combination of the glass along with fabricated metal, rubber, hardware, and lighting elements.  He continued working with plate glass but his focus shifted to the vessel form - recognizable objects, rich in history and varying in shape and function.  The vessel series are crafted from cut and polished plate glass laminated with dyed and pigmented adhesive.  Unlike a traditional vessel, his vessels are solid and non-functional.  They are, however, filled with a volume of color that reflects and refracts with the glass and light to form three-dimensional sculptures of ever changing colour.
