Notes Ellen Jewett of her "natural history surrealist" sculptures:

Each sculpture is handmade and painted with no more tools than fingers and a paint brush. By virtue of this primal process, each creation is completely unique and produced in a fluid and intuitive manner. The process begins with a handmade metal armature over which light weight clay is sculpted. The painting is executed with acrylic, mineral and oil pigments and the embedded eyes are glass. When complete the whole piece is glazed to intensify colour and strength. With inspiration derived from animal physiology and a love of the fantastic, grotesque and absurd, each sculpture is unique and personable. The detailed craftsmanship is rich and thoughtful and never cast molded or replicated. Despite appearances these sculptures ship extremely well, I ship internationally on a weekly basis.

The Freedom from Pants Ride

In Minneapolis last weekend, cyclists came out in patriotic costumes and various states of undress on the 4th of July to participate in the annual Freedom from Pants Ride.

The picture at left was snapped by The Leveret (who at the time had no idea what was going on!), while the image below is from Victor Barajas' collection of images from the day.

The photo above is by Joe Bielawa and is actually from the 2012 Freedom from Pants Ride.

The rest of the photos in this post are from this year's ride and were taken by City Pages photographer Tyler Bloomquist.
