On his website, artist Gabriel Dishaw describes himself as an “upcycler/sculptor,” but looking at his work, it’s fair to assume he’s also huge Star Wars fan, too. He has several series devoted to characters from the films, including a number of recent sculptures that cleverly repurpose Louis Vuitton handbags among their materials.

Most of the intricate, one-of-a-kind pieces run well over $1,000 (and most are sold out anyway), but those of us without deep pockets can ogle his creations via Dishaw’s website and his Instagram feed. We see a lot of Star Wars art these days, especially posters, but these sculptures are truly unique. Here’s a few of our favorites:

Every time I say “I am sick of Star Wars and its derivative art Pop Culture Postmodern mashup bullshit”, I see art like this and I am truly amazed.

These are fucking gorgeous, Star Wars or not. My jaw drops at the handling of the material, the contrast, the textures, the lines, the weight, the value. Brilliance.
