Sea diver helmet made by first year grad Kelly Renko. The headlamp actually lights up!
Rear view. Kelly used primarily Wonderflex thermoplastic to create this piece.
Undergraduate Jess Adams, despite serious illness this past week, still pulled off this
Klingon judge's gavel from maché and a repurposed garden sphere.
Undergraduate Lydia Hanchette created this cuir bouille cincher,
pauldron, and vambrace entirely of hardened leather.
Body armor and pauldron/vambrace rig by second year Adrienne Corral
Adrienne used a combination of Wonderflex, vegetable and oil tanned leather,
and a reclaimed mink pelt.
The whole rig on a body ready to kick some butt.
It's bittersweet--i'm glad it's summer (since i have a lot of cool stuff lined up for summer!) but i'm sad that this class is over. I'm going to miss seeing these students and the great projects they came up with!
