The artists must utilize one automobile component from a Fiat 500 and transform it into a piece of art.
"My first car ever, was a pea green '65 mustang convertible with pony interior. I loved that car. Perhaps I loved it too much. It broke down almost every week and I just didn't have the know-how or the money to fix it, so I eventually sold it to my boss's 16 year old son. I worked for a sandblasting company and they restored and collected cars. I think he still has it.
So in memoriam for my 1st car, I took the emblem of the mustangs and pierced them out of copper, enameled them and added fused copper chain."
Our next challenge:
Episode 8: Sell Out
Premiere: December 7, 2011
Due date: December 16, 2100
The artists work in teams to create a minimum of one piece of art to sell to the public, but that is also worthy of presenting in a gallery show.
Since we all already sell to the public the chioces are...
a. Collaborate with at least one other person (jeweler or non-jeweler) to create a piece
b. Create a piece that could be in production but is unique enough to show in an art gallery or magazine
Other interpretations are welcome. This one is a bit vague.
