Know When to Fold 'Em

Here’s my latest project/obsession that is due today. The project was to use fold forming as the main design of the piece. It could be either a piece of jewelry or an object. Why I chose to make this bowl, I have no idea. This is the largest thing I’ve ever made. It’s about 7″ in diameter and stands about 6″ tall (maybe taller with the wheels). The wheels do work, but not well. Think of them as the gimpy shopping cart you always seem to get at the grocery store. This particular piece was not without its problems. I had the whole thing done and ready to set the CZs when one of the wheels fell off. In attempting to resolder it, I melted it. Oh well, no pain no gain.

Here’s the finished piece and a close up of the CZs.

Here’s the poor little wheel that I destroyed trying to solder it back on to the bottom!

    The photos remind me of the Pumpkin Coach from Cinderella…its very cool and I love the addition of the CZs.

  2. Yep, that was the #1 comment today during the critique. I actually had the coach in mind while I was making it so it’s nice it comes across. The wheels had the entire class laughing. They are just so weird!

  3. I was just going to say what Suzanne said! Cinderella’s pumpkin coach!

    Very cool.
