From Personified Burning Matches to Vibrant Crater Seating

Matchstick design is fairly common these days. Wood is not the most flexible material to work with, but artists seem to enjoy the challenge of optimizing and working with its burnt form in intricate ways.

Matchsticks are often used to create hyper-realistic sculptures, such as the colossal matchstick busts. They have been personified in burning forms and have even been made into pastries.

The most laborious art works are of the miniature buildings made out of matchsticks, such as flammable armadas and matchstick mystical towers.

The results of most matchstick projects are simply incredible. These works are certainly for the admirably patient artist who highly values their process just as much as they value their final outcome. Stats for 42 Intricate Matchstick Designs Trending: Older & Buzzing
