Sculptures Made From ‘Magnetic Clay’ by Jolan Van der Wiel

Magnets might hold mysterious appeal for some, but for Jolan Van der Wiel, they’re just another tool. For the past few years, the Dutch designer has been experimenting with magnetism to shape and create objects like violent looking stools and futuristic couture dresses.

His most recent investigation, Architecture Meets Magnetism, has led him to create a series of ceramic objects that look like Tim Burton got a hold of a kiln. Like Van der Wiel’s previous projects, this process begins by mixing metal with the core material. In this case, he created a slip (a mixture of clay and water) and added metallic powder like iron. The ratio is typically 90 percent clay, 10 percent metal. From there, he pipes this mixture through a nozzle, layering it on itself like icing on a cake. As the group of surrounding magnets take hold, the material is pulled into shape and dries like a spiky Hershey’s Kiss.

Embroidered Landscapes by Ana Teresa Barboza

Using embroidery, yarn, and and wool artist Ana Teresa Barboza creates landscapes and other imagery that exists in the space between tapestry and sculpture. Mimicking the flow of waves or grass, each piece seems to tumble from its embroidery hoop where it flows down the gallery wall. Most of the pieces seen here are from her 2013 Suspension series, though you can see more on her blog (be sure to click “entrar” next to each item). You can also read a bit more about her work on Now Contemporary Art. (via ThisIsColossal)

The Story by Mobstr

This put a smile on my face. Continuing on from Mobstr’s "Playing With The Buff Man" series, The Story tells the tale of the on going dance between the artist and the so called “Buff Man” as they both fight for control over the wall.
