Objects that seem like half-finished sketches of candle holders, vases, bowls and bottles won British designer Maya Selway second prize in the Object category of the Interieur Design Awards 2012 at the Interieur design biennale in Kortrijk, Belgium.
Each object in the Kishu collection is carefully weighted at its base to support its lopsided structure. “I worked for a long time to get the balance just right,” Selway told Dezeen.
The delicate pieces are made from oxidised copper, and the vase also has a shallow silver dish for holding water.
Drawing finally done! Started 3 months ago, It took a way longer than I expected. I thought that drawing in white on black would be easier but not at all. The thing is, to have white really really white, I had to draw so many times that I’ve lost count (I killed 3 entire pencils to achieve it.)
The process was so long also because of the large size of the drawing; the principal difficult was to do all these different lightings and shadows. My favourite part was to draw Sherlock climbing the stairs; I loved to draw the shadow on his coat and the staircase. But I didn’t enjoy so much drawing the hair of the profile, it drove me crazy! I was really happy when I put my signature at the end.

So, we are team Apocalyptic Wormstaches. We recently lost most of our team for varies reasons. We have 3 returning members, and 2 new. We are from the US (1 VA, 3 FA), and Germany. We are looking for people who are dedicated and who want to have fun. Must have a good camera. A competitive, creative nature would be perfect.
Yep! Join us! We’re nice! We’re motivated! And we are going to fight the apocalypse in a wormstachy way!
In the late 1960’s, photographer Arthur Tress began a series of photographs that were inspired by the dreams of children. Tress had each child he approached tell him about a prominent dream of theirs which Tress would then artistically re-create and photograph with the child as the main subject.
