Ink Bottles

BOTTLES, originally uploaded by old school paul.
This is Old School Paul's collection of Ink Bottles from his Flickr Photostream~ You can find other photos of his collection and Ton's of fun images at his Flickr Photostream~
"An ink bottle was made of glass and typically sat on a desk. The writer would dip the pen (or quill) into the bottle to put more ink on the pen. Because they set on a desk, ink bottles were often decorative. Ink wells (as opposed to "ink bottles") were typically metal with a glass insert, often ornate, and sat on a desk. The larger master ink (pint or quart size) was used to store ink and refill the smaller ink wells. Ink bottles were shaped so they were hard to tip over" from Antique Ink Bottles

Be@rbrick Collection

From Gloomy Little Cloud on Flicker
"Be@rbrick is a collectible toy designed and produced by the Japanese company MediCom Toy Incorporated. The name is derived from the fact that the figure is a cartoon-style representation of a bear, and that it is a variation of MediCom's Kubrick design. The at sign in the place of the letter a is a visual device that is a part of the Be@rbrick brand, and as such, a trademark of MediCom Toy.

The figure is an anthropomorphized bear with an extremely simplified form and a pot belly. Each plastic figure features nine parts (widely referred to as tools in the toy industry): head, torso, hips, arms, hands, and legs; These nine tools allow eight points of articulation: swivel head, swivel waist, ball joint arms, swivel wrists, and ball joint legs."

Crazy Consumerism Collection

I found these on the Joetta Maue's blog Little Yellow Birds. They are pictures of Artist
Portia Munson who created this incredible installation and "uses the refuse of consumer culture that usually ends up in landfills and yard sales,what you might call, the backside of the mall". It sets off an array of emotions. Check out Joetta's blog for more pictures. You'll be glad you did`
