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





Jason deCaires Taylor cre­ates under­wa­ter sculp­tures: “Taylor’s sculptures—a syn­thesis of art and science—are made with care­fully researched environmentally-friendly mater­i­als which act­ively pro­mote coral growth, with inert Ph neut­ral prop­er­ties designed to last hun­dreds of years”. You really should check out the gal­lery on the website.

Heather Benning, artist-in-residence for the town of Redvers, has con­ver­ted a derel­ict farm­house into a giant doll’s house by remov­ing the entire side of the build­ing. Such a clever, play­ful, idea. [Via BoingBoing]

This desk by designer Bomi Park should prob­ably win some sort of award for imprac­tic­al­ity. Of course, it isn’t sup­posed to be prac­tical, it’s sup­posed to be cool, and it is.

I’ve talked before on this blog about my love of woods, so I really liked these pho­to­graphs of forests by PhotoCosma, who are two broth­ers from Romania. Beautiful, eerie and some­times sur­real shots – go take a look.

Also wood based are these won­der­ful bowls and vases from Laura Yeats. From the web­site: “Each ves­sel is a quiet love affair. […] Each tells a story about the nature of things — growth and decay, inner beauty and outer, col­lab­or­a­tions between nature and humans. Just like any other love affair; When you find the right one for you, you’ll know.”

And finally, it’s been at least a fort­night since I fea­tured Lego here, so here are the sub­mis­sions for a Microscale Sci-fi LEGO con­test. Microscale refers to tiny Lego mod­els made with a small num­ber of pieces, often used in unusual ways – my favour­ite is this ador­able little Enterprise.
