Walking Wounded: Frames

I made a couple of frames for my friend. One is made from a solid piece of poplar. The other to look like a sheet of notebook paper.

Hope you like 'em

Will Cotton: Peter and The Wolf

Isaac Mizrahi will narrate Sergei Prokofiev’s charming children’s classic, as George Manahan conducts the Juilliard Ensemble. Artist Will Cotton will bring the production to life with a newly commissioned installation, in which the familiar characters are set within a gingerbread chalet. The audience is invited to view the artwork on stage following the program. The story brings 30 minutes of suspense, including a happy ending, and allows the young and young at heart to learn and remember the various instruments in the orchestra.


Walking Wounded: Superball Ottoman; In Process

I made an ottoman out of Mahogany. I cut the legs and aprons using the band saw and shaped them by hand with a spokeshave.

The cushion is made from 1000 1" children's superballs- the type you get out of a vending machine. I used silicone to glue them in place. One. At. A. Time.

There's a plexi box with a light fixture in it, under the lights- so when you turn it on- it glows.

I hope you like it.
