A stunning series of wood sculptures (more like wood reformations and morphings) by Korean sculptor Jaeyho Lee. We like to think that these just magically appear in the woods, and an unsuspecting hiker just comes across them and begins to believe in UFOs. But alas, Lee is behind the work, and both in gallery and in nature, they are awe-inspiring.

With a German father and a mother from Sri-Lanka, Bernhard grew up in a multi cultural environment which he enjoyed a lot. He’s currently studying at the Folkwang university, working on his finals to get his diploma.

We have shown the work of Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, on the site before. This time, the artist has just created a site-specific sculpture/installation for the Mexican animation event Cut Out Fest. The Dead Fly is just that; a gigantic dead fly, belly-up, on a rooftop in Querétaro. The piece was made in conjunction of the Day of Dead festivities.

Last month was busy, so busy we forgot to mention that Brooklyn-based collective, Faile, installed a sculpture entitled “Wolf Within” at the National Garden Park in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The piece depicts a man on his knees cloaked in a wolf pelt tearing away at his two-piece suit.

Pasadena, California artist Beth Stichter isn’t your typical sclupture - she builds her stoneware sculptures solid on metal armatures, often with 2,000 or more pounds of clay at a time, then cuts the piece into 30-160 sections, hollows each section out to 1/4" thickness, and reassembles them before firing. 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.

This could come in handy on those awkward dinner time arguments, or better yet, a really bad date. Michael Beitz has created the "avoid conversation dining table," featuring a central hump in the middle to obstruct the diner at the other end of the table. You will now be speaking to a piece of wood.

We have been waiting to see work like this for quite some time, not that we don't love a detailed sand sculpture of the Simpsons. We just wanted to see something simple, geometric, and patterned from someone on the beach, and Calvin Seibert has such a clean approach, we can't believe he gets this completed so close to a danger zone. The danger being a wave that feels like extending itself just a tad further.
