woodlucker

i haven't bought cracker jacks in years but i remember as a child getting these type dexterity games as my prize. you remember....how you had to roll the little metal balls around until they filled all the holes? well, these are some adult sized games. love them! they are made by artist dean lucker. the detail is amazing.
he also makes mechanical pictures and statues. with this one, when you press the lever, he puts the apple to his mouth and a spider comes out of the tree to catch the butterfly. want! want! want!
this is one of ann wood's creations. she uses dyed, cracked, egg shells and seed beads set with surgical tweezers to create these wonderful images. wow!
you can see more of their work here.
