Surgically Altered Ceramics by Beccy Ridsdel
UK-based artist Beccy Ridsdel creates fun yet strangely macabre interventions where ceramics have been surgically altered to reveal additional layers of detail. Where the metaphor of surgery might normally evoke blood and guts, Ridsdel instead reveals further floral patterns inside bone china plates and cups. The pieces are part of an ongoing examination regarding the perception of ceramics as craft or art. You can see more of her work over on Facebook and she has a few pieces for sale in her shop.

Nestled between hills in the eastern Sahara desert bordering the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt is an awesome piece of land art entitled Desert Breath. Between 1995 and 1997 this site-specific installation was created by the D.A.ST. Arteam, comprised of installation artist Danae Stratou, industrial designer and architect Alexandra Stratou, and architect Stella Constantindies.
8,000 square meters of sand were displaced to create large positive and negative conical volumes which form two interlocking spirals that expand from a water-filled center across an area of 100,000 square meters.
17 years since it was created, Desert Breath still exists, “becoming through its slow disintegration, an instrument to measure the passage of time.”

My lil BUG/ICE fakemon, Friskex. It’s 4x weak to fire, but bites back at flying-types like nobody’s business.
Songbird by Robb Waters
"It’s a bird…It’s a plane…
Designing a monstrosity that was as Iconic yet different from Bioshock’s Big Daddy’s was one tough bill. After many drafts and a little bit of hair pulling the Songbird as we know him finally emerged…and it was worth it all.”
Vetches and passion flowers have modified some of their leaves and converted them into tendrils. These grope around in space until they touch the stem of another plant and swiftly coil around it. The tendrils then coil and pull the plant up towards the sunlight.
and we speculate on aliens…
