Wonderful Milk Bottle Art

Residents of Stourbridge, West Midlands (UK) and surrounding villages were having a pleasant surprise when they took their milk bottles. They would find pictures of animals, often cows or mice, carefully carved onto the glass in astonishing detail.

The artist, called by neighbors as 'bottle Banksy', would take the used milk bottles from doorsteps and then return them after having etched elaborate pictures. The identity of this artist was later known: Charlotte Hughes-Martin. The ex-lecturer, who works from a studio in a former glass factory, decorated the used bottles before randomly returning them to the doorsteps. Meet Charlotte's Milk Bottle Art.

Sapphire Knife

Russian guys makes knives made of sapphire.

These knives can be easily taken inside the airplane in your handbag, for example if you care about your right to use your knife anywhere you want.

These knives cannot be discovered by any sort of metal-detector, they have none metal parts at all.

Their blades are being made from artificial sapphire, the same material that is being used to make non-scratchable watches by leading Swiss brands. Handles are made of the bone.

Only diamonds exceed it in the hardness, so anybody can easily make his name carved on the airplanes bull’s-eye airplane window. It scratches glass without any difficulty and can be sharpened only with special diamond whetstone.

Art for a Dollar

Critically acclaimed tattoo artist, Scott Campbell, recently showed his work at the O.H.W.O.W. gallery in Miami, FL. The highlight of the evening was a series of laser-cut etchings, each on a stack of $1 bills. The collection is entitled “Make It Rain” and shows a sampling of the artist’s dark and beautiful undertones.

Scott Campbell was born in rural Louisiana and began his career illustrating before mastering the art of tattoo. In 2004, he opened Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn where he perfected his signature style.
