Upcycled Wine Bottle Desk Lamp.

It’s someone’s birthday again. Rather than buying presents off the shelf, I decided to get crafty… viola, a table lamp made out of disused wine bottle!

The cement base was casted out of a disused snack container, which explains the inverted numberings and grooves. Thought that an Edison bulb would give it a nice vintage look. But decided against it as it wasn’t too practical considering the poor electrical efficiency and heat generated (not in our sunny island).

First attempt with cement and much more to learn, but I actually quite like how it turned out in the end. 

Nothing beats handmade ;)

How to Age Paper in Batches

I’ve tinkered with aging paper a bit over the years, but when it came time to age some envelopes for my artifact storytelling project, I found that a lot of the tutorials focus on aging a single page at a time, and faced with a box of 250 parts, I needed to figure out some techniques to make everything run a bit faster. This instructable will show you how to age a stack of 30-50 pieces, and end up with consistent markings across the batch, in about 1 hour.For this tutorial, I’ll be aging the preprinted envelopes from my project. They come from the printers bright white with solid blue borders. To make it look old, we’ll have to change some things.

Madame Peripetie. Dream Sequence. Book Project.

Created jointly with stylist Stella Gosteva and make-up artist Marina Keri, Madame Peripettie’s (Sylwana Zybura) “Dream Sequence” photography series seeks to ‘illuminate the dreamy phantasmagorias to which we disappear to in the night, creating charaters that ‘radiate a sense of ever-lasting awe and reverence.’”

I absolutely love maps and these portraits using them are quite simply beautiful.

New Portraits Carved from Old Military Maps

Artist Ed Fairburn has recently come out with new works that live somewhere between sculptures and drawings. He’s still using traditional ink to draw on maps but now he’s cutting and layering maps to create incredibly intriguing works.
