Cork Art

It has happened on several occasions that one craft leads to another. That was the case when I was doing research on wreath art and came across a wreath entirely made out of cork.

I had not even occurred to me to look for cork art, but when I did I was speechless seeing all those amazing creations made with this material.

This is Chinese cork art and each part is cut by hand. The intricate pieces are glued together creating a small, delicate panorama. Due to the fact that it is so delicate, much of this art is being encased in glass.

I tried to find some information of how it is done and what is used, but so far no luck. If someone has some info on this technique, then please share? Thanks.

A work of art does not have to be small either, as shown here. This mural is being pieced together one cork at the time. Just imagine how much time and patience goes in to that.

It is definitely thinking outside the box. You may think this artist popped his cork, but I find it ingenious!
