Moderne wooden animal sculptures from Uusi

Are you searching for awesome gifts ideas? Then look no further than these charming wooden sculptures from Chicago-based design studio Uusi. If you’ve been following this blog you may have noticed that I have a slight obsession with wooden figurines, so I couldn’t resist posting these beauties.

Beller Re-Turned woodcraft

I wish there are more designers like Lars Beller Fjetland. The Norwegian environmentally-conscious artist spent three years studying bleak economics before turning to something more creative and positive. A graduate from Bergen National Academy of the Arts in 2012 Lars focuses on sustainable, eco-friendly design projects. He found a way to make good use of discarded wood through his “Re-turned” project – a series of recycled wood crafted birds.

A number one vase

If you had asked me long time ago if I consider it proper buying vases for a present, I would have told you that vases are just not the right thing to gift.
