Isabel Samaras’ Nutz Plate

isabel-samaras-nutz-plate

This limited edition plate of a little squirrel rocking a thick gold dookie chain with acorn pendant is pretty awesome.  As a matter of fact, all of the work Isabel Samaras created for her latest show at Shooting Gallery in San Francisco is awesome.  Check out some more after the jump, where you will see a pimpin’ porcupine, a wize owl, and even some ghetto blastin’ birds.

David Ellis in New Zealand

david-ellis

David Ellis just finished up a month-long residency in New Zealand that culminated in a show of new works at Webb’s.  While the show did just close this past Friday, there are still some pieces available.  With the Dollar at the US’s advantage, a piece like Record & Tapes (above) will only run you $1857.00 US, instead of the 3500 $NZ that it was pegged for.  Absolute steals are to be had. See more of the work here, and more information after the jump.
