The Golden Apple
When I started to scale up my work, the paper and encaustic I had been using did not have the strength to support the weight of the new larger pieces. I started experimenting with different plastics, rubbers, staplers, rivets, glues, etc. I just finished this piece. It is made from polycarbonate sheet, PVC tubing, polyurethane, house paint and spray paint. It is stapled and riveted together, then coated with a layer of polyurethane, which ads a certain boingy-ness to it. To see just how sturdy this thing is, click on the video at the end of this post!
