Dean Patman from Hove, Sussex, creates little animal sculptures from found objects. He has always been fascinated with animals, drawing or modelling them, or hunting them as a child in the back garden.

This gorgeous mobile is made from hand hammered solid copper that if placed outside will tarnish and acquire a green coating from oxidation. To encourage this tarnishing, the mobile can be hung outside, but it can also be hung inside, where the tarnishing will be slower. There are 14 Ginkgo leaves, and only 100 mobiles made.
The Ginkgo leaf mobile can be found and purchased on Artful Home for $75 each

Italian sculptor Maurizio Savini is known for making art out of chewing gum. Yeap real actual bubble gum, I guess that’s why he has “Do Not Touch” signs on his exhibits. Now I can just imagine hordes of school kids descending on the exhibitions and stripping all the sculptures to get little pieces of bubble gum for themselves. Maurizio has been commissioned as stage designer by Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and the Salzburg Easter Festival as well as been awarded a Cité Internationale des Arts scholarship by the city of Paris in 2005. He has also held several dozen exhibitions, the most recent of which is in the Fondazione Pastaficio Cerere now showing till the 27th November 2011.
Joshua Harker is an incredible artist who has realized art exhibited and advertised is changing rapidly, with this he has decided to take advantage of that change. He has opened a Kickstarter page where he plans on getting as many people to view his work as possible, then he will make one sculpture for every one that has pledged to his funding. Joshua’s work is delicate, intriguing and subtly macabre. A great show piece for Halloween and Día de los Muertos.
