Many people have various opinions about art. What is art? This clip is from a series called Creature Comforts. The interviews (more…)
From the annals of stuff you don’t see every day I bring you this fantastic and entertaining shot. Any guesses as to where you might find such a work of art? I’ll give you a tip: It’s NOT from the movie set of any of the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids films. Lol.

Hope everyone is doing well! Today I thought I’d share with you all something a bit more fun. Loren Stump is a California native artist known for his beautiful stained glass art work. He began his work over 40 years ago and in 1993 discovered his love for glass in molten form. He is self taught, believe it or not, and has a amazing series of sliced glass pieces. He works in a style called murrine, which consist of melting many rods of class together. When sliced they reveal portraits or “paintings.” His works have appeared all over the world. You can find his works at the Corning Museum of Glass, The Ertz Israel Museum, and the Kyokei Fujita Glass Museum. Or just see below for these amazing works.
Beautiful and amazing ! Watch how these works of art and symmetry are created!!!
