Like an Aladdin's Cave - Starry Wingtip of Small Magellanic Cloud

This is one of my favourite images from space. It comes from the "wingtip" of the Small Magellanic Cloud. It's like an Aladdin's cave, filled with sparkling, starry jewels. Other peeps must like it too, as I've sold a few bits 'n bobs in my Zazzle store that use it. Here's a short sample of gear I've got it on. Click any of them to see bigger / personalize and buy.

Galaxies, Stars and Nebulae series: The tip of the "wing" of the Small Magellanic Cloud galaxy is dazzling in this new view from NASA's Great Observatories. The Small Magellanic Cloud, or SMC, is a small galaxy about 200,000 light-years way that orbits our own Milky Way spiral galaxy. Many navigators, including Ferdinand Magellan who lends his name to the SMC, used it to help find their way across the oceans.

New Seaside Murals That Change With the Tide by Artist Sean Yoro

Fun and Random

"HO'I MAI"

Artist Sean Yoro, also known as Hula (previously), seems to be more comfortable on his paddle board than on ground, placing murals in hard to reach places, like underpasses and the side of a sinking ship. It is these seaside backdrops that he creates his hyperrealistic portraits, images of woman that peek above the water when the tide is just right.

The tide was the original inspiration for his new ship-based piece Ho'i Mai. The piece features a woman with arm outstretched, reaching beyond her position in the water. The piece's title which translates to "Come Back" alludes both to her longing gesture and the tide that hides and reveals her face and limb. (via Junk Culture)

Hypnotizing New Concentric Ceramic Vessels by Matthew Chambers

Fun and Random

chambers-1

Usually people describe staring at a spinning pottery wheel as being somewhat hypnotizing, not staring at ceramic artworks themselves. But such is the case with these uncanny pieces by Matthew Chambers (previously) who continues to push the limits of his concentric stoneware vessels. Every visible layer in his sculptures is individually crafted on a wheel before Chambers assembles them, with a single piece containing dozens of objects. The artist experiments with color, scale, and the patterns by which each piece is internally situated to form colorful gradients or suggest motion across a sequences of sculptures.

Seen here is a collection of more recent work and you can see much more on Mouvements Mordernes and Puls Ceramics. Chambers will also have new pieces on view at the Campden Gallery in Gloucestershire starting October 10th.
