Another project involving bud vases but this time it’s objects made for a gift shop. I’m still wondering whether using hardwoods would give the dishes more longevity but we’ll get back to that at a later stage. Funny where designing and making things takes you!
Ok folks, the shop is now officially closed but R/R is still fully operational and available for commissions, exhibits, markets and public art projects. Many thanks go out to Renew Adelaide, My Modern Nest, Film Buff Central, Port Adelaide Artists Forum, Our Port, Renewal SA, Forge Creative Warehouse, Red Lime Shack, Hot Tonto and other fellow creative types and supporters. R/R couldn’t have done it without you 🙂
These two paintings/sculptures are an extension of the boat models I made last year, themselves based on old tug boats. They feature painted timber offcuts, cardboard and a small amount of woodcarving.
Oops I seem to have forgotten this, the first of a tryptic of paintings which further explore Port Adelaide. All three are the same size and will be made using recycled materials, I guess they’re kind of half paintings half sculptures. Stay tuned for further updates on this little project 🙂
