UK based artist David Mach uses common household material such as matchsticks to create sculptures of pure artistic genius. The process begins with designing a form, often done by having a plastic model made from a clay mold to which David sticks thousands of Japanese imported colorful matches to create these remarkable sculptures. Depicting both real and fictional characters, Mach’s sculptures are an array of realistic  looking figures from Betty Boop, Charlie Chaplin, and even Marilyn Monroe, all of the matchstick art pieces are simply stunning. Some of his work is sold at galleries and auctions, but others are set on fire at exhibitions.
