Johnna Klukas makes science fiction wood carvings, sculpture and furniture. She has also detailed her techniques (with more "coming soon").

That's all very well, but does she do pens?

"If a Cranberry Falls in a Bog and There's No Welsh Terrier There To See It, Does It Make Ripple?" might be the single best title I've ever heard for a work of art.

2004, near the top

Fantastic stuff, which, like all accomplished and imaginative woodworking, makes me insanely jealous of the artist.

WOW! Lovely and impressive. Thanks for this outstanding link, DU.

I know, right? I don't dare look too closely at the techniques pages because it'll just fill my head with unrealized plans.

Johnna Klukas is an award-winning artist who was a computer scientist (BS 1984) and electrical engineer (MSECE 1987) before turning to art full-time in 1997.

There are not too many people who would make that career change.

I'm a box collector, and her boxes are making me wish I made a hell of a lot more money than I do.

Damn those are nice.

I un-rss'd i09 long ago because there were 14 posts a minute, but from the lack of appreciation there, I'm glad I did anyway. Maybe the post framing led to it but still, what crap responses.

Kudos, indeed. Especially the multi-colored rocketships

Yeah, Annalee Newitz is wasted on that site. I still subscribe but I'm not really sure why.
