Emil Fiore is an American artist who makes art using spiderwebs he finds in the wild. Fiore, 58, first started experimenting with spiderweb art when he was in his early 20s, spray-painting a web onto a piece of stained glass.

Over time, Fiore has refined his craft, and now, his webby works sell for up to $200 apiece. Fiore usually finds the webs he uses in the woods near his home of Dumont, New Jersey. In a move that is sure to please PETA, the artist doesn't kill the spiders that own the webs, but he does leave the pray caught in them, saying that they "add to the story" of the art. You can see a few of Emil Fiore's works here, along with a behind-the-scenes video showing the artist at work.
