Areaware Wall Art (Vinyl)

For inexpensive art, take a good look at Areaware’s vinyl wall decals. The 98″ x 18″ wall panels might be the perfect thing for the end of a hallway or a ho-hum room. I’ll post the larger wall vinyls in the remodel section later on this week (since they would work/look more like a wallpaper as far as coverage).

eninal Frames

Anything can be art when you present it in the right way. Case in point are these pieces by designer fift; either tissues or your pick of various objects becomes something contemplative when hung in a handmade wooden frame on the wall.

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…

Crayon Rabbit Sculpture

I’ve watched Donnie Darko and Sexy Beast, so the chance of this bunny being non-creepy is long gone*, but for anyone who appreciated the earlier post on Herb Williams’ crayon sculptures you might be interested to see a new item has been added to the mix.

A sculptor who ingeniously uses crayons as his medium, [Herb] Williams creates works that are not only strikingly beautiful but playfully allude to serious cultural icons as well. And don’t forget that unmistakably happy smell. This spirited bunny measures 17 1/2″ x 12″ x 12″ and is made of crayons and Fiberglas. Signed and dated.

$12,000.00, Buy it here.

(*as if it being creepy would be the primary reason of not dropping 12 Gs right now.)

Clean Slate Blackboards

Sure, blackboards are everywhere nowadays, but I still want one. Too bad the larger of these two has a gargantuan shipping charge or it could have been a contender (i.e. contendah).

Robert Clarke’s Bird Paintings

Here are some rather quaint paintings of birds…maybe to add to your art collection?

Clarke studied at Central St Martins in the early 80′s and throughout his varied career of being a lecturer, art director, curator and interior design consultant, he has always found pleasure painting birds…These days he gets to paint and draw birds fulltime.

The paintings are 10 in x 8 in, drawings A4

I know most of you are tired of the deer head trend, because really, who isn’t, but then again, I do like this acrylic slotted-together head by Science and Sons.

A Field Guide To Weeds, Kim Beck

A little bit of art in an unexpected place…

Synopsis: A Field Guide to Weeds masquerades as a 19th century pocket guide, but a guide in which the weeds themselves have taken over. Beck’s innovative project uses the physical form of the book as a metaphor for a crack in the city sidewalk: printed in luscious five-color printing, the common dandelion, pigweed, and poison ivy—the very plants we ignore, step over, ignore, dig up, or scrupulously avoid—creep out of the gutter, up pages, and overrun the book. Multiple silhouettes overlap and repeat, drawing the reader’s attention to the overlooked. The book features a brown silk ribbon marker.

Edition 1500
17.5 x 11.8 cm.

Cellule

Check out this modular lattice wall: it can be mounted indoors or out and can expand as needed. The only catch is that it hasn’t been manufactured yet (I know, sorry) and will need a minimum amount of people to fund the project in order for it to become reality. So, if you’re interested, take a look at their site.

Borne out of the limitations of traditional wood slat lattice too large for downtown condominiums and apartments, Cellule is snapped together to allow climbing plants to grow in any complex urban space. At 183mm x 183mm (7.20” x 7.20”), it can quickly cover wall surfaces but is small enough to fit most environments and obstacles. Each module has mounting features for cable ties to attach to railings and a generous hole for screwing into wood, drywall, siding, brick, or concrete. Made from UV stabilized polypropylene, Cellule can be used indoors or outdoors and is fully recyclable. -joydevivre.org

sold in sets of 9 modules and caps. Mounting hardware is not included.
