Corks Off , 2009
14" Tall , cork and superglue
This model of a celabratory wine bottle is constructed entirely of cork and superglue. I used a radial sander and a variety of hand tools to shape the originally cylindrical corks into interlocking forms, creating the overall shape of a wine bottle. The center is hollow and the neck of the bottle removable, making a concealed storage space. Its creation was a challenging process. The idea behind the material used was that of the 'found object'. The assorted cork collection was recycled to create this unique object.
