-Ceramics, Glass, Polyester Filler, Car Paint are the main materials KIM SIMONSSON use to realise those ultrapolished looking human figures, disturbing, probably exploring a lot of childhood nightmare but still artistically interesting..i guess.
-looking for bikes online i found this Rover safety bicycle from 1885 that i actually found quite lovely in proportions.
happened to be the first bicycle as we know it today , following the pennyfarthing , it definitely will replace it by 1890, making the ordinary "big front wheel"bicycle obsolete.
"The Rover safety bicycle was designed by J. K. Starley of Coventry and was first exhibited in London in early 1885. His design made the bicycle a universal mode of transport and established a basic form which has changed remarkably little since then" makingthemoderworld.org

-fixies or not, wheels job are sweet lately, some nice job on colors and material for the rim itself but spokes are always a nice touch , i went online and found some interesting spanish laced one , snowflakes ,offset radial or crow's feet ..
