Patty Cokus

Remember that "toy" that was basically just a drawing of a man's bald head, and you'd use a magnet to drag metal shavings around on top, giving him various mustaches and hairdos? (Boy, life before Playstation was tough, wasn't it?) Seattle artist Patty Cokus gives new life to that idea with her amazing "attraction" ring, featuring boro glass with steel filings inside and a magnet on the outside (pictured at far right, US$250). Also pictured here is her "growing grass" ring, US$200; when worn, the grass-filled tubes push up, like they're sprouting from your hand.
