that sculptor is amazing! he even has whole people displayed like that. and they look alive!

another amazing artist (or whatever he's called) is that guy who heads up body worlds (i think they're german). my husband who's a sculptor helped set of their show in phoenix, and it was absolutely amazing!

i mean, of course there's controversy and whatnot surrounding these kinds of exhibits, but that's another post in itself ;)

You SWEETHEART!

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
