Andy Paiko’s glass art

The Glass Chair.

Today’s glass artists continue to astonish. Andy Paiko‘s one-off creation above is a chair whose vitrines contain a rhesus monkey skull, a piece of octopus coral, a murex spiny trumpet shell, the skeleton of a rat, and a mountain lion skull. The piece below contains a 24 carat gold-plated coyote skull with the work as a whole being described by the artist as representing various stages of the alchemical process. Go and feast your eyes on the rest of his creations. Thanks again to Thom for the tip!

    His work is remarkable, and totally made me think of you!

    Quite remarkable glass pieces indeed – also reminded me of the animation of Karel Zeman and that particular quality of some Czech animation…..

    His pieces are incredible! And you have to really love the irony of the glass seismograph. :-)

    I like this – it’s slightly steampunk.

    Sue: I wrote something a while back about Karel Zeman’s animation of glass ornaments. Zeman crossed with Svankmajer, perhaps, given the way the latter enjoys his animal bones.

    Yewtree: Glasspunk, maybe?
