I've been watching The Stepford Wives and zombie/horror flicks on a loop lately, and I found them all oddly inspiring! 
All of these are repurposed tins covered in polymer clay, accented with acrylic paints, glitter, and/or glass microbeads.  The ladies heads and severed arms are porcelain parts intended for making angel dolls, which I find even scarier than what I did with them :p

Anyway...

This was supposed to be a box, but I forgot to carve out the slots for the hinges, so it's now a magnet:




I was leafing through an old medical book of skin diseases:

I love the Bruised but not Broken one.  They may be gory, but there's definitely a sense of beauty there as well.  Amazing work!

Wow. You just HAD to have that eye ball rolling across that third tin, didn't you? I'm in love with the skin disease one- it's great that you can find inspiration in such varied places.

These are pretty clever. I have to say though that the bruised but not broken one is really fantastic.
