The Laughing Stone by Hirotoshi Ito

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 13, 2011
That stone has a good set of teeth. Japanese sculpture artist, Hirotoshi Ito, created this Laughing Stone because its funny. Actually, that may or may not be the reason, but the result is creepy and funny all at the same time. The stone is laughing at you/me/us.

Watch Sculptures by Dominic Wilcox

Juxtapoz // Sunday, October 02, 2011
This is a great concept; Dominic Wilcox creates watch sculptures, where he takes classic appearing time pieces and gives them personality and different time concepts. This series of seven sculptures with the tiny hand-crafted figures attached to the hands, is on display at Dezeen Space in London through October 16.

Wire Sculptures by Gavin Worth

Juxtapoz // Sunday, September 25, 2011
Sometimes the aim should just be a simple complexity. The wire sculputures of San Francisco-based Gavin Worth, whether of a body of a woman or just a simple pair of hands, are elegantly done and appear effortless.

Rubber Tire Carvings by Wim Delvoye

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 24, 2011
Something tells us these take a lot of time. A rubber tire, one that you place on your car, seems like a difficult medium to carve, but Wim Delvoye has created an entire series of carvings on tires that are quite impressive and highly-detailed work. The series is called Pneu, French for tire.

Photo Sculptures by Letha Wilson

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 19, 2011
Letha Wilson's photo sculptures take photographic imagery a step further, adding new geometric forms and more complex spacial interaction, engaging the viewer with a photograph in a fresh and unfamiliar way. The images are intriguing, but how Wilson installs the images is what's most interesting.

Bizarre Sculptures by Johnston Foster

Juxtapoz // Sunday, September 18, 2011
It took us about 2 seconds after seeing this shark sculpture by Johnston Foster to know we loved is work. Foster's work is sculpture-based, but almost created in a cartoon, comic book way. His materials range from plywood, vinyl flooring, baby pool, plastic trash can, vacuum hose, plastic table cloth, vinyl, racket ball, marbles, and screws.

Yes Can Equal No

Juxtapoz // Sunday, September 18, 2011
Thanks to Markus Raetz and his typography sculpture turned optical illusion, yes and no can co-exist in perfect harmony. The Swiss-born artist has made a collection of sculptures that also play on the viewer's vantage point.

Urinal Sculptures by Clark Sorensen

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 17, 2011
This may be the first time, and last time, that we get into the contemporary urinal sculpture news briefs, but we have to admit that San Francisco-based Clark Sorensen's urinal sculptures are impressively bizarre. And yes, these can work in your local fast food restroom.

Typewriters to Sculptures by Jeremy Mayer

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 12, 2011
Because typewriters are mainly used as decoration or by someone trying to recreate some Moveable Feast/Ernest Hemingway moments, California-based Jeremy Mayer takes typewriters and parts and recreates the pieces into highly detailed and large sculptures.

LED Books by Airan Kang

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 09, 2011
Last year, when Airan Kang opened her solo show, Light Reading, at Bryce Wolkowitz in NYC, it was one of our favorite shows of 2010. LED book installations? How could you go wrong. Last night, while on our iPad, we decided to look at Kang's LED book work once again.
