Twited Sister Art
Oh, how I love rhinestones. Flash, brilliance, movement. Layers of handwoven wire, a purple blue eye and a fringe of rhinestones, makes a one of a kind pin brooch. Add the accompanying 20 inch chain and it becomes a statement piece. How much fun can one piece be
Lyonesse City by Flaviobolla
Light by Marcel Boonen
Recycling waste of our industrial society is the inspiration of my artwork. All of my sculptures are entirely hand made from recycled scrap metal such as copper, brass and steel . I create art with all kinds of technology and techniques to soften the design despite the roughness and robust properties of the material. Therefore I create art with a respectful atmosphere and sometimes funny or even cynical view of reality. My work emphasizes a balance between the form and function. It blurs the line between utensil and decoration. I’ve created various functional objects such as lamps and clocks who’ve been made from heavy metal scrap into mechanical decoration with an industrial style which I like to call Steampunk Art.
Time travel, steampunk and botany inspire Victorian-themed Indian restaurant
A new Indian restaurant and cocktail bar has opened in London with a design that pays tribute to the scientists and botanists of the Victorian era and their explorations in the jungles of India. Walls and shelves of the restaurant are filled with authentic 19th century artefacts evoking adventurous tropical explorations, such as apothecary bottles, microscopes, looking glasses, walking canes, jars of plant specimens and original botanical prints. In addition to its tropical flourishes, the design features examples of Steampunk style and lighting, industrial parts and custom-designed metalwork used by Victorian engineers such as Isambard Kingdom Brunel. This is juxtaposed with 21st century pop light fittings and luxury suiting fabrics. “Victorian Britain is a fabulous treasure trove of scientific, artistic and literary works,â Chebaane told CLAD. âAfter reading dozen of books from the 19th century, I edited and condensed them into one narrative arc and developed an aesthetic language to design an experience relevant to todayâs youth, while also being inclusive to a more mature audience. The result is a mixture of Victorian fantasy and postmodernist design.”
