Japanese artist Kohei Nawa recently showed his "PixCell" collection at Tokyo's Scai The Bathhouse. "PixCell" is a collection of regular every day items, busts & taxidermy covered in glass beads. Nawa uses a wide variety of sizes of glass beads and the results are stunning. The way the light reflects through the beads distorts the objects and sometimes makes them barely recognizable. 

To me, the objects look like they are covered in sugar or some sort of candy.

    That's not resin; it's cast glass and stone. Christina Bothwell went to art school for painting but taught herself the ways of ceramics and evetually cast glass. She creates these ethereal - and sometimes haunting - sculptures out of glass and stone.

    Blown glass is often limited to vases, marbles, fake candy, and of course bongs and pipes.
