There are sand castles contests that produce amazing work, but these pieces by Carl Jara are double-take worthy. The Cleveland, Ohio-based artist says that he sculpts things would never expect to see at a sand castle competition. Well that makes a lot of sense after looking at these pieces.

Lionel Bawden constructs elaborate and fluid sculptures strictly with Staedtler pencils.

Artist and Philosophy Professor Stefanie Rocknak takes a single piece of basswood and carves beautiful sculptures. The Swimmer is part of a three piece commission called The Triathlete which will also include a biker and runner. "These days," says Rocknak, "I am not very interested in sculpted figures, or real people, that 'strike a pose.' I am much more intrigued by folks who are on their way to or from somewhere.

Stunning work.
