Blown Glass Sculptures by Kiva Ford

Blown glass is often limited to vases, marbles, fake candy, and of course bongs and pipes. But Kiva Ford, who creates custom medical instruments out of blown glass, creates amazingly intricate sculptures, from single figures to an entire story of an animal's journey from tadpole to frog. While his large-scale work doesn't seem to be for sale, you can get a piece of the glass blowing action with miniatures and cute jewelry, like a skull in a bottle, from Ford's Etsy shop. Since glassblowing takes years of practice and large specialized equipment, it's unlikely for us to see pop artists make use of the medium, so hopefully Kiva Ford keeps producing this type of art.

    You've seen Cleon Peterson's Balance of Power before, but not like this. Case Studyo have collaborated with the artist to create a 3D version of the painting rendered in glossy, white porcelain.

    I had to do a double-take when I saw this email in my inbox this morning. Cult film director, comic book author, and Twitter philosopher Alejandro Jodorowsky is being immortalized in resin by Unbox Industries.

    These glass sculptures are far more interesting than that shitty Crystal Skulls movie.
