Giant Hand of Vyrnwy
So, the tallest tree in Wales was hit by lightning, but instead of tearing it down, the artist Simon O’Rourke transformed it into a magnificent sculpture.
With a CHAINSAW.

“Above the Waves”
“Above the Waves” is the title of this whimsical hand cranked wooden dragon sculpture by Cecilia Schiller.
Located in the subway beneath the Rochester Mayo Clinic Marriott, in the James Krom Natural Images gallery.
“A Penny Saved…”
She’s an amazingly life-sized sculpture carved entirely out of wood. A two hundred and ten pound butternut log, to be exact.
Sculptor Fred Cogelow, of Willmar, Minnesota, took six months to create her. Completed, she weighs in at 62.5 pounds after being hollowed out to prevent cracking.
She currently stands in the subway beneath the Marriott at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, in a gallery with equally impressive works of art.
She can be yours for a sum of $157,000 (dollars), but I have a selfish request.
PLEASE don’t buy her! It would break my heart 💔, and the hearts of those that welcome the pause, she gives us from our worries.
If she has to be bought, let Mayo Clinic be the one 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Stained Glass Cabin
A miniature house made from glass shows off expert construction and dazzling motifs seemingly ripped from Alice In Wonderland. Covered with stained glass, the house sits on a property in Mohawk, New Jersey. Neile Cooper, a long-time stained-glass artist and jeweler, considers the Glass Cabin her most ambitious work to date. The sharp right angles of the house juxtapose with the swiveling oversized leaves and the curving wingspan of butterflies, accentuating the fantasy house. “The Glass Cabin is my dream project, my creative sanctuary in my yard in a lovely lakeside town,” the artist explains.
“It is made almost entirely of reclaimed materials. Rafter beams from some fallen trees, lumber from a neighbor’s storm-damaged porch, and many, many old window frames. The cabin’s front-facing wall measures 8-feet by 12-feet. The cabin is small but the views from within are spectacular and kaleidoscopic,” explains Cooper. Indeed.
Cooper explores many of these same motifs in her popular jewelry designs. You can see more photos of Glass Cabin on Instagram. (via This Isn’t Happiness)
