I know some people who post some pretty useless stuff on Facebook (you probably know some of those people too), but a friend of mine posted this the other day, and I thought it was kinda cool. Robert Bradford makes sculptures of animals and people using discarded plastic — from toy parts, household items, and other colorful trash. Each one is like a little scavenger hunt — what can you find?

Check out Bradford’s site for more dogs — including soft sculptures and giant dog heads made from repurposed stainless steel.

Have you gotten the September/October issue of The Bark yet? It’s all about dog-friendly home design. Interior decorating + dogs? Why am I not writing for this magazine? Come on, Bark, gimme a call. I can relocate.

Anyway, toward the back I spotted a little ad for artist and sculptor Melissa Ferreira. Ferriera is the creator of Paper Pets, delicate and whimsical sculptures made with cardboard, paper bits, tape, glue, and other mixed media.

You can see more of Ferreira’s work on her website and read more about her process on her blog.

I remember seeing Amelia Santiago‘s felted wool dog sculptures a while back somewhere on these here interwebs — I can’t remember where it was, but then I often can’t remember whether I’ve fed the dogs or not. Anyway, I was stoked when she contacted me and jogged my memory, ’cause her work is seriously amazing, y’all.

Amelia creates these tiny little canines from wool fibers with a needle. A NEEDLE. Do you know what I can do with a needle? Pretty much NOTHING. I can Frankenstein the pups’ toys back together, and that’s really it. (What I need to know is if Amelia can make sculptures out of dog hair. I’ve got enough here to fabricate a veritable tiny-dog army.)

But I’ve digressed. Amelia uses photographs sent to her by clients to create custom sculptures of their dogs. (You can check out the client gallery on her site to see the amazing likenesses.) She’s sculpted dozens of breeds and a totally squeal-worthy passel of mutts, too.

I AM IN AWE, y’all.

Amelia Santiago lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Go visit her website and be amazed.
