Over at Colossal they have the stunningly beautiful sculpture of Louise Durham. Here’s their intro:
Based in the coastal town of Shoreham-by-Sea, England, artist Louise Durham creates towering wooden sculptures of reclaimed sea defense timber and vibrant stained glass. She embeds stripes and circles in a full spectrum of color within the totem-style works, which when illuminated, cast kaleidoscopic shadows on their surroundings. “It is all about the light,” she says. “That’s the magic of glass and the magic of all living things.”
In some ways they remind me of stained glass windows in churches. There is something spiritual to them, though in an abstract way. You can bring your own spirituality to them, whatever it is. Regardless, they are beautiful and a feast for the eyes.
You can find a selection of her work at Colossal, as well as on her site and Instagram. Go and enjoy.

The clock shown about is the OneClock. It looks great on the outside, and it’s smartly designed on the inside. Over at Colossal, they say, well:
Say goodbye to the days of being jarred awake by the alarm blaring from your iPhone. The creative team over at OneClock designed a streamlined device with the intention of rousing people in a more peaceful manner, one with soothing melodies that are in stark contrast to the startling sounds many of us hear every morning.
Smart. For more on the clock, click on the link to Colossal. Not only will you learn more about the clock, but there’s lots of great photos of it too.

I love the ceramics of Hewitt, especially for the way she works in digits as part of the overall work. Such as this piece

Colossal has some gorgeous paper sculptures on exhibit on their site. Created by Matthew Shlian, they are well worth seeing. Click the link to see.
These paper sculptures by Wolfram Kampffmeyer (aka Paperwolf) are gorgeous. You buy them and make them yourself. Simply go to Etsy, here, and order a from a range of different animals, sizes, and prices. Great gift idea, too.

Just from a technical point of view, these Incredible Peacocks Constructed from Beauty Supplies over at Colossal are amazing. However, they are not just technically amazing, but aesthetically quite striking, too.
Collosal has more photos showing this work. Well worth seeing.
This porcelain is not just amazing, it is something you can buy. And not just robots, but sea monsters and flying monkeys too. Perfect for anyone needing a house warming. 🙂
I love the detail: the robot is in the middle of the plate and also all around the edge.
