These Are Not Inflatable Toys


I have this thing about objects that are made to look like one thing but function as another. Or quite simply put, I love a good trick of the eye. The illusion of Brett Kerns ceramic sculptures mind altering fun. If you’re going to mess with my head it’s OK to do it in this way.  Now before you poise your fingers to type the obvious – yes, I realize that Koons has a similar thing going on. But Koons used stainless steel and Kerns’ is crafting these by hand from clay.

It’s his elaborate detailing – down to the well placed air valve – that makes it easy to pass off his pop art ceramics as actual toy inflatables. While he’s receiving lots of press right now, you can still grab one of these babies for your very own from his Etsy.

    To my mind, Hertz hire an auto organization is one of the better worldwide! Wherever I am, there is the only one idea in my head – to reserve a car from Hertz! They offer quite affordable costs and also tariffs. One particular minus is that it’s possible you’ll wait in long line to obtain a vehicle. It is not unusual! People today are attracted by their offers! Lots of completely different vehicles are offered in Norway out of Hertz. As to me, I have a preference for SUVs – really fantastic cars! Million megastars to Hertz rental-car at Oslo Air-port (Gardermoen)!
