Repair 3 (CONE)

Posted: Sunday, May 1, 2016 | Posted by Rebeca Acosta | 2 comments
Materials: kiln fused glass, Stained glass, welded steel and found object (cone)

Back at it again with another repair. Found this beautifully destroyed cone on the road on my way to Hunter open studios and couldn't resist. A while ago I was doing an Instagram based photo series on disrepaired cones it only seems fitting in my need to repair things that I would eventually come full circle and repair this object which I have become enamored with, that being said, cones are often used even in states of disrepair. This particular damage was too severe for this object to retain any functional use. Here it is in its newly minted glory.

Here are some objects I recently repaired.
These objects are made from found recycled glass from Dead horse bay. so the glass is from circa 1890-1930. Now after about a hundred years these once functional objects can return to a life of objecthood.

I made these crowns out of these traditional cowboys and "indians", and toy soldier toys I had caste in bronze and braised onto steel. As toys they are very steeped in war, bloodshed and fighting over land. All of the toys on the crowns would identify as American, thus cementing their place in the American Monarchy.
