SpoonBridge Raspberry

   by Yelena Stanisic and Carolyn Kearns for Re-Invent a Work of Art (2013)

Inspiration Piece: Spoonbridge Cherry

Inspiration Artist: Claes Oldenburg

We created an environment for our spoon by using wooden blocks as buildings , painting details like windows on the front. Trees constructed from the newsprint packing material are wound around green foam and painted autumn colors. The spoon is constructed from a wire armature and oil based clay, then painted white. We changed the original idea of a cherry in this sculpture to a raspberry to make this our own, and modeled sculpey, then applied color. All the pieces rest on a ground made from the rectangular wood piece painted green.
