"Look but don't touch" is a phrase everyone should be careful to follow when viewing the elaborate creations made entirely out of knife blades by Susan Noyes.

She uses super sharp razor blades in her profuse collection of decorative patterns, experimenting with different shapes and sizes of blades, including X-acto knives, Stanley blades and more. The patterns have a dangerous playfulness to them with their enchanting symmetry and the attractive gleam of steel, but don't get too close to these cutting creations. To hang one in the home would require a sturdy glass protector case to prevent pesky fingers from being sliced.

The demure look of perfect organization is balanced out with the threatening look of painful knife blades in this artwork series by Susan Noyes.
