IF Kids :: Thinking Outside the Crayon Box


carved crayons by peter goldlust

Don’t you love opening a fresh box of crayons! Oh, the many possibilities! For Peter Goldlust they are the base material for his miniature sculptures, each one meticulously¬†hand-carved into abstract forms.

Christian Faur casts his own “pixels of wax” to create the necessary palette for his hauntingly beautiful pointillist images, such as “Mortgage on the Future.” The dashes of color are coded to an alphabet and if you know the key, the image may be read.
