birthday undercut

undercut

for my birthday a bigger undercut dyed green by Ed.


new phonecase



since Windows has decided in 2016 to stop supporting 8.1 mobile and has stopped mobile phones altogether with support for 10 mobile ending 2019 I splashed out on a used last model Lumia 950. It’s not as good as my lovely 1020, but apps are dying on me, so to be prepared a new case had to be made. This time with driftwood gathered years ago and some pencil laminate left over from the ring project.


japanese paper

origami earrings1

found some scraps of real Japanese paper and made some earrings and a pin for Christmas gifts. The papers are so beautiful, one can look at them for ages and still not get enough.


horse baroque

saddle 5

another up-cycle baroque project. My robot horse (from the rubbish heap), 2 worn out Desigu*l bags, bits of wood and plexiglass cut off pieces, an old belt all together make up my new side table for a large portion of my painting and drawing utensils.

The saddle itself was inspired by an 18th century Japanese saddle seen on the net.


going baroque

kegeltisch standup

up-cycling materials that have been hanging around for 15 years: 3 bowling pins discarded by our local bowling alley, one leg and picture frame from *kea rejects, part of Chinese table cloth and an aerial support. Resulting in a laptop/side table height adjustable from stand up to sit down in arm chair.

I must have been overwhelmed by my baroque urge in the process because this was the initial design:

new improvements

pimpedshades1

finally I have succumbed and had some varifocal glasses made and bout a pair of clip on sunshades for them. The scope for upgrade is big, so I started with the sunshades, using Japanese origami paper on top of laminated watercolor paper.

I also added some braces on the sides since the original middle clip kept coming off too easily.

Next step is to improve the glasses themselves…
