Williams British Handmade designed this non-traditional collection of luggage, and while I’m not exactly sure what it’s all used for, it looks really cool.
Chelsea Green and James Minola from Grain have made these fun rings out of old electrical wire sourced from a used building material supplier in Seattle. Their packaging is clean and simple and goes very well with the bright colored wire. Two thumbs up for recycling and good design.

Ok, so this is my third food related post this week. For those of you that are craving variety more than food art, I give you my word that I won’t go overboard with my current intrigue. But, I just couldn’t resist posting these photographs of accessories made out of food. The project, which is called “A Matter of Taste”, is the work of Italian photographer Fulvio Bonavia. His creations are truly remarkable. Take a look at Fulvio’s site to see more.

I was recently sent photos of these beautiful colored pencil and marker drawings by Decorah, Iowa-based artist Amber Hendricks. This series of realist-meets-surrealist drawings juxtaposes the natural and glamorized appearances of women in modern society.

Sure, shoe’s can be beautiful, but can you consider them art? Well if you’re talking about Robert Tabor’s shoes then the answer is definitely “yes”. He has made amazing, although maybe not entirely functional, shoes that are works of art. Here are a some of my favorite shoe sculptures that Robert made. Be sure to to take a look at his Etsy store too: Sole Sensations.
