This wood-wrapped Opel is amazing. Check out the old-world joinery. Check out the truth in materials. I wonder if it floats? Details are scarce, but according to the photo, it originally came from the (awesomely anarchic) AutoZoo.ru.
This body of work was created during a Summer 2010 residency at the Pottery Workshop in Jingdezhen, China. These porcelain vessels explore traditional Chinese iconography as refracted through a decidedly Western point of view.
