Derek-Gores-Collages

Sometimes, the most deliberate of things come together based purely on their randomness. The collages of Derek Gores are a perfect example. With subject matters ranging from femme fatales to 5.0L cammer engines, Gores isn’t afraid to tote the line between dream and reality. As he describes it, “In the collages, some of the little bits I use are deliberate, but in most I’m trusting randomness to help build an end result more interesting than I could have planned. One friend calls it a ‘Zen Narrative.'” Regardless of how you choose to interpret Gores’ work, it’s easily the coolest background you’ve had for your computer in quite a while.

 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.
