Sunday night, we are going elsewhere for dinner, too much stuff on my working surfaces here- wish I would have discovered this trick a long time ago.
A prickly squirrel, some prickly art:
Ukrainian glass artist Nikita Drachuk of Glass Symphony creates all manner of glass spiders, octopi, and other critters by hand. He uses a method called lampworking, where a lamp or torch is used to melt rods of colored glass. Once in a molten state, the glass can be formed by blowing and shaping with various tools and small movements. You can see more of their delicate glass critters here.
Art director and prop stylist Jessica Dance (previously) has collaborated again with food photographer David Sykes to bring us another tasty spread of knit dishes and other edibles. Dance makes all of the objects at home using 100% lambswool on a domestic knitting machine. All of the shots here (except the cheese spread) were for the comfort food issue of the latest edition of Stylist.
