I’ve been toying with some new pieces in my studio. We’ve talked a lot about spoons around the studio over the past year since NCECA Milwaukee. I must admit that it’s been a lot of talk… and not much spoon-making. Until now.
Here’s my first batch of spoons – still needing some refinement and firing!
So far… I’m kinda digging spoon!!!
My favorite movie in 3rd Grade was “The Red Balloon.” We watched it during a school assembly and I was mesmerized. The simple story has stuck with me for years.
So I was excited, and quickly transported back to 3rd Grade, when I saw this whimsical table on Colossal.com. Sure, the kid may have only had ONE Red Balloon… but since then, it looks like they’ve multiplied to make this wonderful table!!!
According to Colossal.com…
The UP Balloon Coffee Table designed by Duffy London cleverly creates the illusion of a glass tabletop supported by 11 helium balloons. The balloons and strings in the UP Balloons table are actually made from steel rods and metal resin composite, creating a sturdy base. Duffy plans to make only 25 tables and they’re available in red, gold, and silver balloons.
