We have featured Chris Gilmour on Fünchkins before, when we spoke about his amazing life-sized cardboard sculptures, this year he has more sculptures that look solid enough to play, drive and stand in awe of. There is even an interview on his website where you can find out the motivation and inspiration behind his cardboard pieces.
In case you were wondering, that is a Life Sized Harley Davidson Panhead motorcycle. I’m sure it would be fully functioning, if it wasn’t, you know made from cardboard. Here at Funchkins we are no strangers to everyday items made from unusual materials like cardboard USB sticks, carved porcelain, beech wood high chairs etc, but the detail on the these sculptures is amazing. Chris Gilmour, the incredibly talented sculptor, creates these masterpieces from just cardboard and glue. I’m sure the time it took him to cut the cardboard, and fold it into the three-dimensional shapes needed to make these sculptures so life-like, would put the price of the cardboard Aston Martin below, around the price of the actual James Bond car.
