Bah, Bah, Bring!!

So I love unusual sculptures.  I am just amazed by what people can create from everyday objects.  I guess it is just wonderful to see what others think of when they look at something, and in this case it is an old rotary phone.

Okay I know, I have to start with explaining what a rotary phone is,  Think back to your childhood, you probably had a little toy phone that had wheels and eyes, a cord, a dial that you had to spin and it made noise when you pulled it.  It was also in Toy Story 3.  Anyways, we actually had those phones when I was a kid.  I know I am old, but keep the thoughts to yourself.

Anyways, artist Jean-Luc Cornec has taken those old rotary phones and turned them and their never ending cords into these adorable sheep.  Unfortunately you will never know what it is like to talk on the phone and be tied to a room and a cord.  I hope you like these sheep sculptures as much as I do.

So what do you think of these sheep?  Did you happen to notice the legs?  So how do you think he assembled these sheep?  Can you think of another material that would make an amazingly unusual sculpture?

  1. I think all of it looks like sheep, the telephone really makes the face form and show off the ears. I didn't notice the legs at first, but they really resemble the actual foot. I think an amazing unusual sculpture could be made out of scissors.

  2. What if he gets a fax? What does the fax say. That is so sheep or is it sheek. This a neat way to recucle. He must have gotten wrapped up in his work

  3. I think these are really cool. I like the one on the top because I like on how it's close up. I think that whoever created this made a good idea.

  4. These are so cute! The cords could pass as real sheep wool. It would be cool to see this project done with other common household cords, like phone chargers. Or computer wires could give it a futuristic look.

  5. This is sort of creepy. It is different though. It would be cool to see different colored cords. If I were to do this I would make it into a different animal.

  9. I have got to say this is pretty creative, but it is just a little to weird for me.

  10. I think its pretty cool and he must've made a frame and put all the cord and stuff onto and around it, another weird sculpture could be made out of bottles and bottle caps.

  12. This is a really interesting way to interpret sheep but it kind of creeps me out. Would be cool to see in a museum or something.

  13. I also like the bottom picture. For one thing, I like on how the sheep on the bottom picture is colored differently than the sheep in the other pictures. I also like the background of where the sheep is in the bottom picture

  14. The sheep are very good, whoever made them had some serious dedication in order to do this.

  15. How many phones do you think it took in order to make one without messing up? This is a way of thinking creatively. I certainly couldn't think of this.

  16. That is really creative. I would have thought of that. Im going to buy one and put by my bed

  17. that is cool thing to do with old phones like that and to get the phone cords to go around the sheep must have taken a long time to do and the feet how do u get a phone to bend like that and not brake

  18. The cords do not create a cool texture and it is a: not cool for me. It may be creative but super weird and I don't think the artist pulled it off.

  21. I think that these are very cool sculptures. It looked like it was really hard to wrap the cords around like that. I feel like the artist did a very good job on these sculptures.

  23. I think these are very cool and unique. Interesting how somebody would come up with the idea to do this I don't think that I would of ever thought of it.

  25. I think these the sheep were assembled by tangling cords around a frame, that part seems simple, the part that is confusing is how the broken phone can support the weight.

  27. this looks really cool. it looks really hard to do. the phone part of it is really cool. great find. i think that these originally had a frame but then was covered up with cords.

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is really unique. The use of the old phone look on the outside is very cool. The whole design on the outside is all phones. In the core however there is most likely some form of structure.

  29. those cord phones man........crazy idea......but coool

  30. This is very weird and unusual.I think you could make others of these out of linked metal chains. But very creative piece.

  39. This might be the coolest thing I've seen on this website. I never would have imagined old rotary phones could be turned into a sheep. When you look at them from the front though, they look really weird, like the black one.

    ReplyDelete
  40. this is very creative and i think i would do this. It would be with cats tho and they would ring when the meow.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is probably the coolest thing ive seen so far on this website. Its made out of telephone cords and the whole telephone actually. thats pretty cool and idk how he/she did it but thats amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  42. This is amazing I honestly don't know how he did this. This must of taken a long time to do. It is very creative.

  44. The sheep look like sheep but I don't like how a phone is used as a sheep head. It just doesn't fit in well. I did notice the legs and they actually look like sheep legs. I have no idea how this artist assembled the sheep. I can't think of any other material that could be used for these.

    ReplyDelete
  45. okay they look cool at first but i have one question why? i do not understand this art. i have to give him credit this wouldn't be easy to make.

  47. These are cool they are confusing though, like hpw would this person even think of doing this.

    ReplyDelete
  48. These sheep are really cool, I'm curious if the sheep's whole body would be made o the wires or if there is something underneath the wires that they are attached to.

  50. This probably took a long time to make and create. Who ever made this has a lot of time on her/his hands but it is really cool and creative. Thumbs up

    ReplyDelete
  51. this is very nice. I love how creative it is without being super creepy. They look very interesting and creative.

    ReplyDelete
  52. i think this would be really hard to make. so i would not make this

  54. With out the telephone wires I never would have guessed that an old telephone looks like a sheep's face. How did this person think of this.

  56. I am sorry but this just is dumb, I don't like it at all. Why on Earth would you make something this dumb, least favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I personally think that these are quite weird and unusual. However I give props to the artist for thinking outside of the box to make them. I would have never thought of using old phones to make art.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I think this is cool, but I don't think I would like to look at these all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  59. This is really cool and its awesome how they used phone cords for the texture of the sheep wool.

    ReplyDelete
  60. This is amazing I honestly don't know how he did this. This must of taken a long time to do. It is very creative.

  61. This is just Amazing. they do not know where they are going.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I personally think that this could be better. It isn't the best art work iv'e seen but it is still pretty good.

    ReplyDelete
  63. i just had to laugh when i saw this it just got me right in this giggle bone. it is indeed very creative and it was funny how the phone made the shape of the sheep head. this would be very cool in a different animal and form.

    ReplyDelete
  64. That so cool i bet that took a lot of time . Its worth it like look at that it amazing man.

    ReplyDelete
  65. This is really. It had to take time and patients to do something this awesome. I would not wont to try this it would be to hard

    ReplyDelete
  66. This is really funny looking. I would definitely give something like this a try. It's very unique, and kind of makes you step out of your comfort zone.

    ReplyDelete
  67. These are pretty funny. I wouldn't call it art though. More of a hobby

    ReplyDelete
  68. These look cool but not as cool as my great uncles. He takes something old styled and turns it into something new. For example he makes jewelry out of silverware.

    ReplyDelete
  69. This is cool, but kind of weird. It's a creative concept. They look like real sheep, so that's cool.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I like sheep and all, but i don't know if i would sink so much time into something like this. This must have been time consuming, and did he really need to make an entire flock?

    ReplyDelete
  71. To be honest, I think that this was a waste of supplies. I don't think that it is really that cool and it just bores me..Of course the time put into it and the creativity would be amazing, but it's just not my type.

    ReplyDelete
  72. The person who came up with this must have been very very creative and had a great imagination. I love the way they used all parts of the phone to make the sheep

    ReplyDelete
  73. I figured technology would take over the world someday. But this way, it's utterly terrifying.

    ReplyDelete
  74. this has to take a lot of phone cords to do and it has to be really hard to make. you have to be able to know what you are doing and making it before you start

    ReplyDelete
  75. What the heck are these things! They are some weird looking sheep, and it looks like it would take awhile to get all of that cord just right. Would still want to try it though.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I think its awesome that they used old phones for everything, its definitely something unique you dont see alot of.

    ReplyDelete
  77. This is amazing. It must have taken a long time to make the sheep out of phones and phone cords. ITs nature and technology mixed into one.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I think this is really cool. I don't think I would be able to do this. The person who created this must be really creative and have a good eye.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I think this is really sweet. I think its cool how someone can look and an old phone and see them making a sheep out of it. I think it would be cool to try something like this.

  80. Thats so cool how the phones are the head i had to look at it twice
