Jaume Plensa produces monumental sculptures in steel, glass, marble, polyester resin, concrete, and bronze. He is best known for his Crown Fountain in Chicago’s Millenium Park, two 50-foot-high glass towers set amidst a pool of water, which play giant video portraits of Chicago residents that periodically purse their lips and spout water into the pool.

Predominantly producing figurative sculpture, Plensa has created larger-than-life-sized heads constructed of fine, stainless-steel wire mesh so that their surrounding environments are visible through the works, and bronze figures cast from his own body.

Morrison’s composite sculptures fuse found objects and histories of artistic discourses into a dialogue of polymorphous forms through a variety of cast metals. With their gleaming surfaces in nickel, stainless steel or bronze, Morrison juxtaposes various genres and processes creating a tension on the surface. The purity of form at the intersection between conceptualism and formalism gradually reveals an amalgam of shapes and textures.

Hong-Kong based artist Johnson Tsang focuses on ceramics, stainless steel sculptures and public art project. He creates strange and unexpected anthropomorphic sculptures where human forms seem to splash effortlessly through functional objects like bowls, plates, and cups. Tsang’s works mostly employ realist sculptural techniques accompanied by surrealist imagination.

Kneip is a craft, design and art studio founded by Jørgen Platou Willumsen and Stian Korntved Ruud that creates its inspiration from nature and objects with artisanal processes.

All sets are handmade. For years, the designers have worked on metals to note the formal qualities of steel, brass or copper and the way they behave over time with certain chemicals or colors.

The collection Pat.vol 1 shows the results of these experiments inspired by nature, climate and geometry. Kneip offers an experimental design with a number of ornamental objects that show the effects on metal.

Love Letter to Plywood, by Tom Sachs

The King is Steel, the Queen is Plywood, and the sooner you know that, and the sooner Tom Sachs explains it to you, the more you will use plywood in your life. And yes, Mr Sachs, in conjunction with his Nike Craft collaboration and his Space Program: Mars show at Park Avenue Armory, he made an entire 7+ minute video on plywood. This is when you know you “have made it.”

Someone looked into it, created a list of cooleset team nicknames

The Steel Curtain was a great one. The Doctors of Dunk from the early 1980’s Louisville teams, again, fresh. The Pittsburgh Pirates in the early to mid-1970s called themselves the “Lumber Company.”

Our all-time favorite was Big Mac and Jose’s “The Bash Brothers,” creating the best poster ever:
