  • To Jollybegood: It’s titled “Consumption,” but when she originally submitted the design to Threadless her caption said, “eating words.” So that’s precisely what she meant! :-) (I linked the original submission above.)

    Btw, I hadn’t seen that pattern before but I love it!

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs
