Clement Valla is a Brooklyn-based artist that plays with the way we see images produced by computers. Postcards from Google Earth is one of his projects that focuses on those strange moments that occasionally happen in Google Earth where the place you’re exploring looks more like Inception than real life. These moments, that happen because of the way that Google uses their Universal Texture to map 2D images on top of 3D surfaces, have been captured and immortalized for eternity by Valla in a collection of images and gallery installation pieces.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
