Banding Bands

Banding bands come in handy when making assemblages. 



In fact, I used 11 banding bands to make this teaspoon bug. 



Turned over, it looks like an alien.

Toothpick Holder


This toothpick holder is unique in that…



it’s very polite, bowing every time you take one from it.
楊枝を取るたびにお辞儀をする律儀な楊枝入れです。

Life ain't so bad at all

So let's always look on the bright side of life 




Assemblage Factory

These are part of my assemblage factory. They sometimes create wonderful synergies.  ガラクタ工房の一部。これらは時にすごい相乗効果を生み出します。

Hybrid Crab

"Hybrid" is a fashionable term these days. It's got a plastic body and metal legs. Not a bad combination?    「ハイブリッド」は最近はやりの言葉。 プラスチックのボディーに金属の脚。悪い組み合わせじゃないでしょ?

Flexible Metal Fish


Star nozzles, plastic beads, bobbins, bells and clips. What a fantastic combination of materials!  クリームの絞り口・プラスチックビーズ・ボビン・鈴・クリップ。なんと素晴らしき材料の組み合わせ!

Curtain Runners


Curtain runners are my favorite materials as they come in handy when building a face.  最近、カーテンランナーがお気に入りです。顔を作るときに便利なんです。



Not that they are available on Amazon :)  別にアマゾンで売っているわけではありません(笑)

Custom-made Holga

Bought 500 grams of scrap leather for only 980 yen ($11.50) ! 東急ハンズで革の端材500グラムをたったの980円で購入!



Covered with leather and fine-tuned, it's no longer a toy camera:)  It's a one-off custom-made Holga!  革を張って微調整。もうトイカメラなんていわせない。この世でたったひとつの特注ホルガ!
