My balloon poodle suddenly looks a bit pathetic

Here's some work by artist Jason Hackenwerth who does things with balloons that you'd never dream were possible.

Weirdly beautiful and curiously organic, they have a quality about them that I've only ever seen before in something like Dale Chihuly's glass sculptures. Visit his site and have a look at the gallery. It's wonderful stuff. And visit Chihuly's site too. If you've never seen his work before, prepare to be utterly amazed.

Good grief...how many balloons is that?

Debby - No idea but he's guaranteed sponsorship by Durex or Trojans!

Wow! These are mind-blowing. Had a quick look at the sites - must look again tomorrow when I've more time ... thank you!

How odd, oddly lovely.

Beautiful if a bit other worldly. They remind me a little of Dale Chihuly blown glass.

Raph - Yup. His website is worth a look.

Surry - Aren't they?

Rob - Exactly my point!

Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year!
