Good fun. For just a second I thought they could
be in a subway station. Not a bad idea. They have mosaic art (I THINK its mosaic) in the subway stop at the Museum of Natural History.
I'm thinking...where should mosaic pinups be placed?

Inspiration.... where are you?

OOXXOO, C

Very sassy... lot's of fun!

Oo la la. Today you have legs, and I have feet.

And how did they make those balls?

These are outstanding. I am also loving the dark background of your blog, suits your beautiful images to a T. I see lots of birds on your sidebar! Birds are my passion. I would love to have that widget on my side bar. Are you also into bird watching?

Marilyn said...

Love the ladies in this art. Thanks!

Oooh La la. Reminds me of 50's (or ist it 40's ?) pin up girl posters/movies I've seen.
I've always loved mosaics; it's an art form I've not tried---yet. Enjoyed. Thanks!

Dear CC,

I stumbled across this store when I spent three weeks in New York City a couple of summers ago. I believe I was in either SoHo or Greenwich Village. Well will you look at that! Your question allowed me to find the name of the showroom that features these fantastic works of art. The name of the place is SICIS; they are based in Italy. Here's their website:
http://www.sicis.it/


These do look like they would fit in nice in a New York subway station. How about by the Parson's School of Design?

I did a post on the subway tiles at the Museum of Natural History here:

Dear Postcards and Coasters,
Now that I found the website, I now know that there is a showroom in Scottsdale.

Dear Ruth,
Could it be synchronicity???

I have no idea how they must weigh a ton but they still appear to float.

Dear Yoli,
Thank you for your compliment on my background color. I took one of the colors in the background of the header photo and copied the hex code into my blogger template. I thought the black was a little too dark.

As for my bird observations. I got the widget through iNaturalist.org ( http://inaturalist.org/). It began as a master's final project by three UC Berkeley students. You can record anything in the natural world. I am a beginner bird watcher and this site has helped me a lot.

Dear Marilyn,
I love them too! So sassy!

Dear gel,
I think pin-up girls were at their height in both the 40's and 50's.

I haven't tried mosaics yet either, though I adore it. I'm afraid if I start, I won't know how to stop.

Oh, oh, OH!!! I love this SO much. I love the naughty, funny, vintage feel of it. Wish I could see it in person. Thanks so much for the glimpse. You find the best stuff!

Dear Relyn,
Yup! These are right up your alley. They are even more impressive in person because of their larger-than-life size.
