The Beady Eyed Craftster is our weekly round-up of shiny (mostly) art and craft related links from across the inter­nets.





Hilla Shamia makes fur­niture from wooden logs and cast alu­mini­um. From the site: “The neg­at­ive factor of burnt wood is trans­formed into aes­thet­ic and emo­tion­al value by pre­ser­va­tion of the nat­ur­al form of the tree trunk, with­in expli­cit bound­ar­ies.” That means it looks really cool.

• Go and look at this pho­to­graph over at National Geographic. Yes, it is a pho­to­graph, not a paint­ing – stun­ning isn’t it?

• Over on Colossal, check out these really neat pop-up / paper engin­eer­ing illus­tra­tions by Jenny Chen.

• Interesting tutori­al over on Make: Projectsmak­ing rings out of coins. It seems like the main ingredi­ent is patience, but I like the fact that he uses a spoon as a ham­mer.

• Artist Annie Vought takes real cor­res­pond­ence, blows it up, and then cuts away the non-ink parts to leave eth­er­e­al lacy  word-webs. Check them out. [Via Designboom]

• And finally, Boing Boing brings us these deli­cious look­ing Illuminated Manuscript cook­ies. From the baker’s site: “I chose his­tori­ated ini­tials from sev­er­al manu­scripts, prin­ted them on edible paper with edible ink, attached them to square cook­ies and gave them gold edges. Who says love of lit­er­at­ure and art can­’t fill a belly?! ”. Makes me won­der wheth­er in 400 year’s time people will be mak­ing space-cook­ies with images of tweets about D‑grade celebrit­ies?
