    All I have to say is, check out his website too if you have two minds and only one of them has been blown.

    I enjoy viewing these and knowing they are made of reclaimed wood is even better. Great craftsmanship as well…

    It is definitely worth checking out this guys website, being able to see larger images of his work really brings the pieces to life. The burning log is incredible. I can’t imagine the amount of time it takes to figure out where each piece of wood should go. I’ve never seen anything like it, it’s genius and I’d love to own one of his sculptures. There are too many amazing pieces to choose a favourite but I must mention the diamond, it’s spot on, you couldn’t fail to know what it was yet when you look more closely, you appreciate the time that’s gone in to get it right. I love the perfectionism of the craft.

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon

Kagaya1

Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!
