NEW PRODUCT! For the die hard Ford guy out there, I’ve just got my first prototype cast aluminum 427 air cleaner switch plate covers in, and I’m liking it! I’ll have the first batch of plates at about Thanksgiving time. (6weeks) Tooling is being made for the rocker style switch (See last picture) as we speak. So, who wants to turn on the horsepower! 😂 $39.95 dm me, or email me firstname.lastname@example.org

Marmara Üniversitesi. Güzel Sanatlar Fakültesi Heykel Bölümü öğrencilerinden Gizem Üstünel’in Yol isimli bitirme projesi ASAŞSANAT desteğiyle gerçekleştirildi.
Gizem Üstünel, çalışmasını şu şekilde açıklıyor: İnsan, kimi zaman isteği üzerine kimi zaman zorunlu olarak, hayatını belirli ebatlara sıkıştırıp bir yerden başka bir yere sürüklemek durumunda. Farklı kültürler ve mekanlar arasında yaşanan bu hareketlilik sonucunda, bireyle mekan arasında ortaya çıkan ve sonu belli olmayan karşılıklı bir uyum süreci söz konusu. Yol, aidiyet duygusu zedelenen bireyin kendine yer bulmaya çalışırken, geldiği yer ve vardığı mekan arasında sıkışıp kalması üzerine kurgulanmıştır.
The graduation project of Gizem Üstünel, the student of the Sculpture Department of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Marmara University is produced with the support of ASASART.
Gizem Üstünel explains her work as follows: Whether willingly or obliged, the individual is to squeeze the life into certain sizes and drag it from one place to another. As a result of this mobility with different cultures and cities, there emerges a mutual and unpredictable orientation period between the individual and the place. The Road shows how this individual, who lost his sense of belonging while seeking for a place to live, is stuck in between the place that he came from and his final destination.
Some more interesting, Australian, early 1990’s design. Solid cast aluminium bowl and candle holder. Similar stuff to Rondel, but maybe just a touch less interesting and commercial. The company was Urban Buffalo Design and they were based in Sydney. Started off at the same time as Rondel and Dinosaur Design, but vanished at some stage. No idea why, can’t find anything about them on line. The bowl was actually a wedding gift to us in 1993. I still got the catalogue that came with it and they made a good variety of objects.
And back to Rondel Design and salt and pepper shakers. These little critters are mimicking the horns of the devil. Designed by Stephane Rondel in 1991 and made from cast aluminium, in Auckland, New Zealand. I contacted him recently and sadly he gave up producing his industrial design line. He did create some rather interesting furniture, too.
