The Beady Eyed Craftster is our mostly weekly round-up of shiny (mostly) art and craft related links from across the internets.
â€¢ Regular readers (all three of you!) will know I often end up linking to Colossal, normally for some photography with a particularly clever element; unusual subject or lighting for example. Well these photos from Hengki Koentjoro donâ€™t have any such gimmicks; theyâ€™re straightforward black and white photos â€“ but what photos!
â€¢ And while youâ€™re over a Colossal, why not check out these stunning animal sculptures made from reclaimed household objects by Sayaka Ganz. Thereâ€™s an amazing sense of life and movement made from things that would usually just be chucked away.
â€¢ Talking of household objects, if youâ€™re looking for an unusual and beautiful lamp, take a look at these salt lamps from Daniel MacDonald. Made by a processes of salt accretion theyâ€™re wonderfully organic looking, like coral. [Via Design Milk]
â€¢ Theyâ€™re been all over the internets, but if you havenâ€™t already seen Twan van Keulenâ€™s fallen leaf typography; go take a look. I wish heâ€™d do an entire alphabet.
â€¢ My wife will tell you that I have way too many notepads. but despite having a box full of empty pads, Iâ€™ll admit to being a little tempted by the Inspiration Pad. Such a simple buy clever subversion would make me smile any time I jotted something down, Iâ€™m sure.
â€¢ And finally, a concept that needs no explanation or introduction: Spocktopus! Etsy seller sewmuch2luv has really outdone herself here.
