Thread and Nail Portraits

November 18, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Design duo Pamela Campagna and husband Thomas Scheiderbauer of L-able created these two intricate thread portraits using old family photographs. Each piece took nearly a month, beginning with the large family portrait using black thread and moving on to the multi-toned woman. I’m such a sucker for this kind of work, being drawn to the geometry that’s used to create the organic shapes. Thanks Pam for sharing your work with Colossal!

I love this clever nail packaging by design student Pier-Philippe Rioux who proposed this as part of a class assignment. The nails are situated to create the numerals depicting their individual length. Brilliant. (via packaging uqam)
