Eeeep!  I would be scared to sit in that chair!  It might bite! Wink

yea, that's what my art teacher said, too. Tongue  It hadn't occurred to me until she said it, but it is a little bit strange to sit on.  It almost seems . . . invasive.  Thanks for looking, everyone!

At the end of the school year, the art seniors at my school get to paint their own chair so they will be remembered for years to come by the bottoms of their fellows.  I decided to do something a little bit different and upholster one of our wooden school chairs.  I grabbed one that was partially carved into that noone could use for painting and set to work.

here was the idea:

and here was the 80s magenta prom dress my boyfriend wore for our English class video:

I sewed the lips first, then attached teeth made of scrap canvas.  The tongue was next, made from scrap neon pink spandex that I think we used to make my princess dress in 4th grade. Finally, I stapled it all to the chair with great enthusiasm. 

The end result:

And finally, covered in drool (snatched from the lining of Dress Monstrosity):

It looks ceramic!  It definitely looks like it would bite to kill.  Wicked choice of subject.
25  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES / Green Hand Recycle Lamp on: May 05, 2008 07:50:09 PM
I made this woodblock earlier in the year when I was using hands as my focus area in IB art class.  I really like it, it's like the hand of god from the sistine chapel (I made an ironic women's restroom sign from it earlier in the semester).  I thought it would look really cool backlit, so I decided to use it for the lamp challenge.

Sorting through the woodblock ink I found this great bright green so I put two and two together and made a lamp depicting the hand of god, commanding humanity to recycle in bright, earth-friendly green.  The paper is reused from a different use in my class, too, so I guess that's even better than recycling.  It was really fun to go pick out a kit and a lightblub and look at all the lighting nuances the hardware store had to offer.  I had a great time!

this was my experiment print

and the leftover materials.  I didn't get any process pics Sad  I did a lot of the artistic work at school and electrical stuff in a flurry in my basement.

Thanks for looking!

you're right about the posing - the second pic is definitely a zombie hand.  On the other hand, I love your style.  Good job.

I can't stop looking at this project!  The color and the shape of the face-hole is really cool, actually, in addition to the whole super-chuette dinosaur aesthetic.  I really want to take a crack at making one myself.  Really good job!

I love the quote.  It's punk-rock passion for a seemingly dainty craft!
