Cup of Hot Melt?

I'm a big fan of the work by Peteris Sidars. His pieces are constructed from hot melt adhesive, which looks like the glue from hot glue guns. The adhesive is used to form objects like cups, bottles, and bowls.

Who would have thought hot glue could be so artistic?

I think I need to fire up the glue gun - I always suspected there was something more that it could do than merely adhere things ... ha ha!
