Anamorphic Sculptures by Jonty Hurwitz

A gardener admires his gourds.  Covered in warts, distorted in form he holds it proudly, knowing the pumpkin pie it will make.
These strangely elongated sculptures lay low to the ground. By exact mathematical formulas and many hours dedicated to studying their measurements, a reflective cylinder which naturally morphs images, grabs all the right angles to create a perfect subject. Jonty Hurwitz of South Africa is the king of anamorphic sculptures. He scans the object into his program, creates the sculptures using 3D software tools, and works the final product with his hands to find that exact picture perfect alignment between his art, the cylinder and your eye. Things aren’t always as they seem, a good lesson on judgement and true beauty.
In the poetic words of the artist, ” Without fail science, magic, and religion have pandered to the cult of youthfulness. More than merely camouflaging a pandemic of fear of death, the desire for rejuvenation is a reject of the infirmities and disease of old age.  It is a desire to regain the beauty and vitality of youth.”

From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
