Disco Chicken Brooch

This piece was done as part of a collaborative project between the artists of EtsyMetal. The project was called Exquisite Corpse and was initiated by Nina Dinoff in New York. The groups was randomly assembled into teams of three artists each. Each artist on a team would start a piece and send it to the next artist on the team, who would then add to the piece and send it on to the third artist on the team. The third artist would finish the piece and return it to the originator. This peice is titled Disco Chicken. The sterling silver body was created by Renee Ford, the sterling silver legs by Laney Clark, and the plastic chicken body by 2Roses. The brooch is slightly elevated off the base so the legs dance freely when the brooch is worn.

Thank you both. The biggest fun aspects of this kind of collaboration is the element of surprise. There is no discussion or agreeing on anything. You get something and alter its course and send it on. The real challenge is to determine what to do with what you get, which often is completely outside your comfort zone or style box, as was the case with this piece. The demented fun part is you also know that you are probably going to throw a complete F-bomb into the next artist's studio.  Maybe we should organize collaboration event here on Crafthaus. That would be even more fun as we are all so much more multi-disciplined.

Fantastic!  I agree with Yu-Ping, I like this collaboration.  Don't know if it would work with me since I get get my-selves to agree on anything...

Of course the chicken body is the best bit :)

It must be very interesting to cooperate a piece with other artists and you never know what the work's going to be! I like this idea :D

When The Farrier Comes To Town

 Ian, the stable's farrier is a shy guy, but I got him to kick on his portable forge for y'all and allow us a quick peek inside his trailer. He said it's a mess inside and he's sorry about that. Lol! Like we don't know what metal working looks…See More
