Jenny Ayrton and Her Miniature Wonderlands in Molten Glass

Devon-based Jenny Ayrton captures miniature wonderlands in molten glass. She encases delicate metal drawings within blocks of glass using a sand-casting technique. The unpredictable flow of the glass brings each scene to life, and ensures that each piece is unique. Ayrton tells us her scenes are directly influenced by her life as a Devon-based mum; following visits to the towns, beach and moor, and she creates tiny wire sketches based on the day’s observations. But she feels like her work sits slightly awkwardly between art and craft so she supposes she’s going in both directions to see what works best,…

At first printing a website may seem like a silly task, but it’s exactly the request I got from a client once. They called and said, “we have a big meeting with our board and we want to print out our website – can you fax it to us.” This task was going to take a lot of paper as the site had over 1,500 pages.

Sanilpimp Art Maybe Good or Not

Snails are adorable; they carry the beautiful homes on their backs all the time. But being cute animals, snails are fragile when living among humans. This inspired some people to paint snails’ shells to make them much more noticeable and protect them from trampling. Artist Stefan Siverud just does the same project “Snailpimp”. He paints living snails with the most varied designs, achieved with non-toxic paints. But after all, snails live in the nature; most animals may try to avoid bright colors that signal danger and mean that the animal may be poisonous, this may protect them from other creatures,but…
