cuppa-day-2

What to do with all of those disposable coffee cups? Well, if you’re creative and have some time to spare, you can use them to create a daily art project.

Cuppaday is an art series by Sydney-based artist Paul Garbett, where he upcycles an empty disposable coffee cup every day into a new cylindrical work of art. Check out more from the series below.

Watch ‘Machete’ Star Danny Trejo Make Bread Animals

danny-trejo

You may recognize Danny Trejo as the star of Machete, or perhaps another movie where he kills a lot of people. And if you ever wondered, as I often do, what Machete does during his downtime, Nerdist has some insight.

Danny Trejo’s Breadanimals visits the action hero during a break from his machete-wielding schedule, to watch him bake some cute bread animals.

From a sourdough turtle to a brioche alligator — Trejo’s creations are as adorable as they are delicious-looking. Just don’t tell him we said that.

A 3D-Sculpted Alphabet Using Food and Other Everyday Objects

Know your 3D-rendered ABCs. The Sculpted Alphabet is brought to us by German design studio FOREAL – rendering all 26 letters using Cinema 4D.

The letters that look good enough to eat are only part of the series, as they employ various everyday objects and body parts as inspiration. However, we focused on the food-related ones because that’s how we roll.

Ugly Mugs

Now, there’s a face only a caffeine-addict could love. These Aesthetically Challenged Coffee Mugs are brought to us by sculptor Jean Cotton.

Part of her series of morbidly adorable pottery, Making Faces, each mug is handmade with no mold, so no two are alike. And, at least this ugly mug of yours will be filled with coffee.

A Full-Size Fast Food Kitchen Carved Entirely From Wood

1

Although we try to ignore what’s going on behind the scenes at a typical fast food restaurant — when it’s stripped down and minimalized, it could be quite beautiful.

At least this version is, by artist Roxy Paine. Officially-titled Carcass, the scale replica fast food kitchen is carved entirely from wood. From the coffee pots to the french fry droppers — Paine spared no detail in the kitchen’s creation. Except the grease stains, and pimply cashiers.

Carcass is on view at Kavi Gupta Gallery in Chicago.
