I was fumbling around the web when I came across this very cool site. "WebUrbanist" has so many cool - and varied - pieces of art, my eyes almost melted to the screen. The above link will take you to a page focusing on the most incredibly carved eggs you've ever seen - as well as phenomenally carved pencils. The word "pencils" is misleading - each of these amazing pieces is carved from a single pencil. One pencil. It's...mind bending! Not to mention the equally fascinating carved books.
Who comes up with this stuff? Who has the patience? How many eggs, pencils, books, etc do they ruin while practicing??
Good things pencils and eggs are cheap!
And their sister site, Dornob, has some interesting creations as well. Edible cups and bowls - grown in a garden? It's true. Check out their sinks, also. I wouldn't want one...but wow. Odd and interesting at the same time.
Here is a quick preview from the first site, WebUrbanist...
There are several other sites connected to the two I've shared - and they all combine "architecture" and "alternative art". If I had known architecture could be so interesting, I may have pursued that career path...and actually have money today!
All the sites tied into WebUrbanist and Dornob are definitely worth checking out.
