Spores as Holiday Balls of Fun by Daniella Trask

Ian has been featured in the New York Times this holiday season, featuring his Spores.

From the New York Times: This homage to Surrealism inspired me to check out the works by another artist, Ian Trask, at Recession Art, several blocks away on Clinton Street. Using recycled materials like turquoise yarn and matchsticks, or mustard yarn and dismantled St. Patrick’s Day jewelry, green beads and shamrocks, Mr. Trask turns Christmas balls into conversation pieces ($50). Very downtown.
