robert farrell’s toys

My laptop died while I was out of town last week which is why there have been no new posts from daMuse. The repairs should be complete later today and then I will pick up the computer, head home and get back to work.This morning I was able to borrow a computer to write a quick post – after the stories I’ve heard this weekend and my own challenges, I’m ready for lighthearted play. You too?

Take a look at Robert Farrell’s elegant silver toys and let your cares fall away for a moment.

Green Zebra House
Sterling, copper, brass, enamel, 23k gold leaf. 11″ long.
Enamel on copper, articulated.

Seussmobile

Green Wagon

Love his wall pieces too.

“All of the pieces that I produce begin as sheet metal and wire. The patterns that you see are inlays rather than surface applications. All objects are hollow constructions, fabricated with the use of simple hand tools and an acetylene torch. There is no lathe-work, no casting, no mass-production techniques of any kind.”

  1. How wonderful! What a fabulous find Susan! I can see nothing more delightful than playing with one of these at your desk. Such gorgeous little toys!

    I am sorry to hear about your computer. I would just die if mine went down. Would have to steal the kid’s but it wouldn’t have the right files, so I would probably have a panic attack. *crossing fingers and knocking on wood so this doesn’t happen*

    Hope things are up and running for you really quickly. It would be sad to have you away from the blogging world for too long.
