Again in keeping with using different types of vessels I went and bought this plastic tool box.
Used to protect and transport a 'mans' tools keeping them together and safe. I have replaced the empty space with bread dough, commonly asscoiated with a womans role of baking in the kitchen, changing the concept of this tool box from masculine to feminine maybe?
The plastic tool box now totally defunked had a totally different effect as what the bread, the tool box melting, distorting and decentragrading but the bread growing and rising taking over the shape and escaping out of the vessel and with the process of decay will contiune to change unlike the box.
After much talk and debate about my work with tutors etc I plan on to contiune using bread as my main material along using different objects instead of just found plastic bottles, with different connotations.
These are kids bath toys, replacing the water with bread, after leaving the objects in the oven and reducing the amount of control I had them, they eventually fell over contiuning to bake and melt and no long will stand upright unsupported.
This pieces kind of reminds me of some wacky tea pot/cake thing you find at the Mad Hatters tea party.
