As you might guess, everything is bigger in Texas, from political disasters (howdy, Dubya!) to cast iron pans molded into the shape of the Lone Star State. That's 30 pounds of pan, outweighing California 3-1 and costing $2,500 compared to $1,500. Seeing that price you might feel as if you just got hit in the head by one of these beauties, but they aren't just functional, they're art, and they can teach you some geography to boot (plus depress you if you live in Colorado or Wyoming and therefore merely rate a rectangle). These are the work of artist Alisa Toninato of FeLion Studios, and you can go look at the rest, even if you're not up for cooking that 4-egg upper and lower peninsula Michigan omelet quite yet.
Alas, it's only a set of the Continental 48 states--Hawaii and Alaska didn't pan out.
