Clay Works by Beth Stichter

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 30, 2012

In order to work on a larger scale, the reassembled hollow pieces are then cut again to fit inside the kiln, fired, and then reassembled with glues and epoxies.

Grin-inducing raconteur and Zap Comix' alumnus, Jerry “Spain” Rodriguez, passed from this temporal world yesterday.

Top 25 Banksy Pieces

Top List // Thursday, November 29, 2012
Love him, hate him, Banksy will always draw some sort of polarizing opinion. Most people will recognize that the man has wit that reaches the ends of the earth, while others think he is an overrated phenomenon that does not deserve the hype. Where do we stand?
