The end is in sight as far as my MA work is concerned and with 2 weeks left to avail myself of the Universities facilities I have been experimenting.
I have discovered these wonderful kitchen utensils a pack of 3 for a £1 in Poundland, made of steel they are just asking to be enamelled. These lovely stumpy ladles and large spoons are transformed with the addition of a spot welded moth rendering their initial purpose void (spot the MA student)
This brings me to the 'Fish Slice Challenge', it is the end of term after all and with the spoon and ladle comes this fish slice which I don't like as much. So I handed them around the fabrication department with the challenge to do something with it before I leave. I am not going to repeat some of the ideas, but I do hope to show you one or two results. I did not like my first attempt, but I had just got the hang of the plasma cutter and I am now cutting holes into everything.
My second attempt pleases me more. So here is the challenge, go get a cheap fish slice and alter it's function, add, subtract and embellish, leave a comment on my blog with a link so we can see, a bit of creative fun to share with each other.
