20 Commission Piece
Made to the customers requirements on a very tight time scale. The company was about to mark its 20th anniversary. The piece needed to be able to have a temporary site at the party and then moved to the office (or possibly ouside - so the cat was high fired to handle a wide range of temperature.
They wanted their waste to be used within the piece. So the number cages were made with recycled mesh I had in the studio and strengthened with off cuts of the 5mm rebar which they use. The cages were to be filled with broken concrete (another by product). (over time the cage will rust and contrast with the filling. The cat was a reminder of the factory cat that adopted the factory and yard.
