Carl Kleiner has released another fun and exciting series called the Carl Kleiner Lollipops, and these pieces have a playful undertone to them, perfect for the end of summer.
Carl uses various objects from around his studio to recreate adorable lollipop sculptures that all seem to follow only one requirement: place a stick in the bottom. Each of his lollipops come in a very structured square-shape design and subtle colorful water drop accents that give off the impression that the lollipops are melting.
Carl explains on his site his process for creating: “I’m a collector of different materials, and I have a lot of samples arranged in my studio window. I re-arrange them every now and then – it is like my Japanese garden."
