I like houses that have been

I like houses that have been mended, expanded, et cetera, says artist Christopher Robin Nordstrm. That is what I want to highlight with my portraits the life of the houses, and how they decay and sometimes die.

Differential erosion on a red sandstone mask on the Trustees Savings Bank in Springburn.

The lines across this scultpture are created by layers of different composition and hardness within the 270 million year old sandstone, which means they weather at different rates. In this case, the effect is quite striking.

This is a detail from a sculpture called 'Mercury Fountain', by the American artist Alexander Calder. It was created for the Spanish Republican Pavilion at the 1937 Paris World's Fair, where it stood in front of Picasso's 'Guernica'. It now lives at the Fundaci Joan Mir, in Barcelona.
For centuries, the worlds primary source of mercury was the mine at Almadn, and this sculpture was conceived as a monument to the mine and its victims.

Beyond Extent dropped a nice video with Ivanna Liittschwager on her process for sculpting rock and wood for environments. I also recommend their other tutorials on environment sculpting.

A new exhibition at the Roswell Museum in New Mexico honors the underrecognized legacy of self-taught wood carver Patrocio Barela.

"The first part of the structure, the Moongate, went together really easy in 30 minutes, so I then kept adding until it was time for me to leave.

"The things I create are really unstable and would do a fair bit of damage if they fell on anyone.

"I am also not a fan of these things left on beaches.

"In reality, the art I create is just the photograph, so I take pictures as I go and before leaving I dismantle."

"ZEROS is a large-scale kinetic sculpture formed by nine massive inner tubes that move to a slow choreography. The artwork occupies a large part of the exhibition space, dwarfing visitors into constrained viewpoints and navigation patterns."

Loved these wooden sculptures over at the English Landing in , MO. I love all the little details and woodland creatures. The Cardinal, owl, robin, raccoon, turtle, even a little bee, dragonfly and snail. So cute. The eagle sculpture has been there for a while but love it, also.

In two major exhibitions, Yinka Shonibare CBE RA celebrates African aesthetics and cultural hybridity.

I love these carved corbels supporting oriel windows on a row of Glasgow tenements on Shaw Street in Govan. Such carved corbels are not unusual on the city's tenements, but these ones are in a class of their own. Bee hives generally relate to industry, owls with knowledge, and I presume the shell and fish signify the sea.

I'll let you in on a secret. Those sculptures you see in museums - so cold, so silent, so stone - also feel. Sometimes they fall in love with a visitor and whisper sweet words that no one else can hear.

Desire moves the world.

'Galina VIII' by Gerald Laing (1976)

En dambulant dans le village abandonn de Cldat, on peut visiblement rencontrer ici ou l des sculptures poses en pleine nature, comme celle-ci de Michel Kirsch.

Dominant la valle de la Corrze naissante presque 800 mtres daltitude, Cldat et ses quelques chaumires, chapelle et maisons ruines sont parpilles au milieu de blocs rocheux comme surgis de terre, quelque part au milieu de nulle part et hors du temps pour toujours.

En 1901, Cldat compte encore 37 habitants mais son isolement et lloignement des voies de communication le condamnent inexorablement. Las, sans lectricit, eau courante et tlphone, les derniers habitants labandonnent en 1963.

Le village est aujourdhui entretenu par une association de bnvoles qui en a fait un ple touristique et culturel qui se visite gratuitement toute lanne. Outre les dizaines de sculptures parpilles () des panneaux explicatifs racontent lhistoire du village, et une exposition de vieux outils de labour est visible dans les ruines dune ancienne grange.
