Labyrinth clay collection by buzhandmade

A collection of wonderful characters from the much loved Jim Henson movie Labyrinth, re-created in clay by illustrator, cartoonist and modeller buzhandmade on Deviant Art.

Labyrinth is a 1986 British-American musical adventure fantasy film directed by Jim Henson, executive produced by George Lucas and based upon conceptual designs by Brian Froud. The film stars David Bowie as Jareth and Jennifer Connelly as Sarah. The plot revolves around 15 year old Sarah’s quest to reach the centre of an enormous otherworldly maze to rescue her infant brother Toby, who has been kidnapped by Jareth, the Goblin King.

The movie is filled with glorious creatures devised by the famous Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, all of which lend themselves perfectly to these skilful clay and Fimo recreations.

Anthony Sforza’s Star Trek fan cave, a museum of all things Trek

Anthony Sforza has built an extraordinary Star Trek museum in the basement of his Long Island home. He has been collecting Star Trek memorabilia for years, but decided in 2010 that it was time build a worthy display for his collection.

It took three years and more than 1,500 hours to complete and is worth an estimated $500,000.

Basing his overall design on the NX-01 Enterprise, from the TV series of the same name, the collection contains replica weapons, uniforms, props, action figures and memorabilia from the popular franchise including original screen used items. 

“It was very difficult to find the materials that they used on the show, I tried to call them but getting an answer was impossible.

“Fortunately I was able to purchase a piece of the original set which I pulled apart to find out the exact paint and materials that were used,” he said. “That’s how I created the basement.”

His two sons, Michael and Daniel couldn’t be happier with their father’s decision to transform their basement into a Star Trek mecca.

“I think that it’s cool because he has all the belts and badges and everything” said Daniel.

“I would love to do something like this when I’m older” added Michael.

His wife, Annette, has given Sforza her complete support of his phenomenal basement recreation.

“I think it’s wonderful, I admire him so much for being able to put vision into something like this and for it to look so incredible,” she said. “It’s wonderful and I’m so proud of him.”
