Photos of Clouds and Storms by Sean R. Heavey

Photo of Clouds

These magnificent photos of clouds and storms were taken by photographer Sean R. Heavey. He uses an iPad to aid him whilst hunting down storms to chase:

Sean explains:

The world’s top storm chasers spend millions of pounds on the latest cutting-edge meteorological equipment – but electrician Sean Heavey gets amazing results using just a £6 download on his iPad.

The simple RadarScope app shows amateur snapper Sean, 35, exactly where huge weather formations are gathering force near his local town.

Then he jumps in his car and, with his iPad or iPhone on his lap, drives into the heart of dangerous and spectacular storms… [Read more]

Resin Sculptures by Carl D’Alvia

Frog Sculpture

These resin sculptures are by Carl D’Alvia, who creates these fantastic works West Cornwall (CT) and New York City. He also uses paint, resin and even bronze to fashion his uniquely-styled works of art, like the frog sculpture above.

Barboncino Sculpture

From the D’Alvia site:

D’Alvia works in a sculptural idiom that is decidedly hyper-visual, artisanal and history laden. He has developed proprietary sculptural processes that co-opt existing means of traditional and industrial production. Drawing on sources that include megalithic monuments, toy design and the Baroque, the work encapsulates seemingly antithetical motifs such as minimal/ornate, industrial/handmade, comic/tragic, progress/destruction and attraction/repulsion… [read more]

Felt Art by Lauren O. Venell

sliced bacon

This felt art by Lauren O. Venell uses fleece, felt, thread, stuffing and wool yarn. The work was commissioned by the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh, PA (USA) for an exhibition they were holding. This exhibition, named “DIY: a Revolution in Handicrafts” was originally set up at an “EAT Space”. Their unique installation includes four large soft sculpture meats to be hung from the ceiling behind a deli case, amongst other things.


You’d normally associate materials like felt and stuffing to be used in teddy bears—this is what has captivated me most with this felt art style work. This whole exhibition turns ‘everything on its head’. Near the end of this post, check out the menu items. I think you’ll be surprised at the interesting facts about meat on there…

bottom me attrays

From Lauren’s site:

This project exposes the true cost of factory farmed meat through the price tags on each tray. The price of each pork and beef product includes both the average supermarket price per pound, plus the cost to taxpayers in public health, environmental damage and government subsidies. These costs were calculated from data found in various government, industry and scientific reports, and are broken out in the “Today’s Specials” menu board… [read more]
