Liza Lou's Beaded Kitchen And Backyard

South Africa-based artist Liza Lou spent five years and millions of beads creating her kitchen and backyard installations.
Every element in her life-size kitchen is covered in millions of hand-glued glass beads, which she applied with a set of tweezers.
Every surface is covered with beads, from dirty dishes in a sink to a pie to a bag of Lays!

For her backyard project,she used over thirty million beads! Most of them went into creating 250,000 blades of grass around the picnic table.

That's amazing, but it's awesome! If I spent that much time on something, I'd just want to sit around and look at it, lol. Not even kidding. :)

Happy weekend to you!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope we can blog buddies.

I was fortunate enough to see this installment at the Minneapolis Institute of Art a while back and it was absolutely amazing. I stood there and looked at everything for over an hour. I can't fathom the patience and attention to detail something like this would take to complete. Love it! Thanks for reminding me of something fun!
