2009-10 / road signs, bolts, nuts, washers, lacquer
Taking cues from origami and modern design, these crisp little fruit bowls are made from vintage Alabama road signs and license plates. Form created by only cutting, bending, and bolting -- an almost waste-free process. The bends are secured with #10 machine bolts. The legs are made from 1/4" carriage bolts, head-down for smooth contact with counter top or table. The body of the sign is 1/8" solid aluminum, and will never rust or deteriorate. Sprayed with several coats of metal lacquer, which seals and and protects the painted surface.
