There is something about a giant sphere that conjures thoughts of cosmic mystery. But this particular sphere is made out of the most earthly and primitive of materials—wood.

The Big Wooden Ball Project, by Mike Leuis, features artist Keith Holamon, who created his own method for building striking sculptures out of found pieces of rotting and discarded trees. Keith had to modify and re-design components to pull off the carving job that produces the massive orbs.

The sculptures have an other-wordly feel to them, combining the intricacies of wood with a smooth spheric form. It kinda' sets the imagination off, and also makes you want to roll it down a huge hill. [Vimeo via LikeCool]
