Air Lines Poster

This art project shows every scheduled flight on any given day with fine lines from the point of origin to the destination. Thousands of lines form dark knots in the busier areas with lighter lines showing less frequented locations, all which define the continents rather than the land/sea relationship. I tend to like the resulting ghost-like net of lines. I might just buy one.

White or Black available.
(The white on black poster is limited to a print run of only 100.)
Each poster is printed on state of the art offset printers on high quality heavyweight fine-art paper. Securely packed and shipped in cardboard mailing tube.

Filigree Skull Money Box

Sometimes you have to spend money to save it, right? And a filigree skull money box is a lot more rock star than visiting your local bank, so maybe you’ll be encouraged to fill it up with change.

Daniel Piršč envisioned porcelain lace, which he applied to enchanting effect on this skull moneybox. “Porcelain can be different,” declares the ceramicist, who set out on this quest when he established his namesake studio in the Czech Republic town of Mikulov in 2005…This money box must go under the hammer to access any savings inside, forcing the coin collector to come to terms with what exactly is most precious…

Size: 6″ l x 4.5″ w x 5.5″
