What happens when a custom DeLorean builder and a master stainless steel fabricator acquire not one, but three wrecked DeLoreans? They work together to modify and combine the broken three to create one of the most awesome stretch limousines we’ve ever seen.
Composed of more than 20,000 Chinese characters, these intricate
sculptures by Zheng Lu are soft and seamless in appearance despite their
stainless steel make-up. The characters used are all chosen from Chinese
texts and poems. For example, the sculpture that looks like a splash of
water is cunningly crafted from the lines of the poem Wan Zhi Shui
(Playing With Water) written by the Tang Dynasty poet Bai Juyi. This
playfulness with details can be seen throughout Lu’s work. When
discussing the use of one of the most original Chinese fonts in a
specific piece, he said, “You would not figure that out from a distant
view. Otherwise, it would not be fun.”
The contemporary Chinese
sculptor has been interested in calligraphy for a long time. He grew up
in a literary family with a strong traditional Chinese intellectual
background and his father made him take up the practice of calligraphy
when he was still very young. This skill is now apparent in much of his
artwork and the inclusion of meaningful text brings a unique aesthetic
and significance to Lu’s already elegant sculptures. Txt Via MMM
These awesomely shiny creatures are the work of British Columbia-based metal sculpture Kevin Stone. He uses mirror-polished stainless steel to create stunning, large-scale sculptures of real animals and mythical creatures, including incredible eagles and dazzling dragons.
Stone spent nearly two years working on a magnificent coiled dragon sculpture for the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, BC. It measured 35 feet long by 14 feet wide by 12 feet high, and weighed a whopping 6,000 pounds. River Rock Casino Resort commissioned the sculpture to celebrate the Year of the Dragon.
