You guys have to use this more!

The blog is what kept me interested in sculpture last semester.

So go to, get an account and search only Sculpting for 30min. You won't regret it.

On that note. Here are some artists I found on stumbleupon.

Luke Jerram

Portrait Projecting Ring

"In a darkened room, light from a candle or LED passes through the ring to project a series of portraits. A selection of miniature slides were made of different family portraits and inserted into the edge of the ring for projection. As Jerram's family grows, photos of his children can be added to the ring. The ring was inspired by 19th Century Stanhopes."

Glass Microbiology

"These transparent glass sculptures were created to contemplate the global impact of each disease and to consider how the artificial colouring of scientific imagery affects our understanding of phenomena. Jerram is exploring the tension between the artworks' beauty, what they represent and their impact on humanity."

Laurel Roth

"In her Peacocks series artist Laurel Roth, a former park ranger, uses fake fingernails, nail polish, barrettes, false eyelashes, and Swarovski crystals as her medium. “My work juxtaposes traditional craft and artisanal techniques with non-traditional materials to examine mankind’s drive to modify itself as well as its environment,” she explains. “By playing with the convergence of biology and product design to create new cultural artifacts, I try to question social constructions of need, design, and individual desire.” Click through to view more pretty peacocks."

kamui cosplay

This is technically a photo series but she made the costumes.
I can't post his stuff because it's all motion. Just check it out. 

Also check out stuff that was posted last semester. There is some GREAT inspiration there.
