Eco-echidna, 2020
Papier mache (Glenorchy Gazettes) and recycled plastic cutlery
22 x 52 x 53cm
Not for sale
My Eco-echidna was created after I noticed all the takeaway forks that had accumulated at home, and I decided I should start an art project.  I asked everyone at work if they had any used forks on their desk, and was inundated with 2nd hand plastic cutlery of all kinds. To make the echidna as eco-friendly as possibly I used Glenorchy Gazettes I have kept (smaller than the newspaper, bigger than a Bunnings catalogue), and some plain newsprint I had been given, made paste from flour and water, and coloured him with cocoa and left-over poster paints.
