2012, Cardboard pulp, walnut, black tea dye, 24"w x 18"h x 8"d
This was my first attempt to design a rocking horse using a classic form. This piece is an extended experiment with cardboard pulp, building on previous models using this material. My aim was to use a natural dye to color the cardboard pulp. The pulp comprises 100 percent post-consumer cardboard. The cardboard is processed into a pulp and then packed by hand over an internal “skeleton” to realize its form.
