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 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.

Stevyn Colgan said...

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!
