16 household objects brought to life through sculpture

I have a vivid memory of the tile in my childhood bathroom. It wasn’t because I spent an inordinate amount of time in there, but because in the spots and swirls that covered those walls I could see faces, smiles, even laughs.

It’s an experience I’m sure we’ve all had from time to time; French artist Gilbert Legrand just takes it to another level. The sculptor likes to transform everyday objects into playful cartoon characters. He uses everything from garden rakes to door hinges. He did not begin the artwork until his sixties, but he says he’s been seeing those faces since he was twelve years old. “I like the optical illusions,” he says. “I love discovering happy accidents.”
