Fox cub

Baby fox commission! Quite a small piece, was fun to make.

Width: 7 cm
Length: 15 cm
Depth: 5 cm

CD shards (over 25 CDs and DVDs used )
Wire mesh frame
Hot glue
Black paint
1 week work time

I use kitchen scissors to cut the shapes I need out of the CDs, then arrange each shard by colour and size. I then hot glue those shards one-by-one to a wire mesh frame to create a natural fur pattern. They usually take a week to make, maybe longer depending on how motivated I am to get them done!

Some people are curious about what's on the CDs/DVDs that I cut up to make these sculptures. This is what's on the discs I used to make this one:

Family Guy: Season 7
The Simpsons: Seasons 20 & 19
Death at a Funeral
Westernex product catalogues

Note: The TV series are crappy, knock-off copies from Indonesia, they always come on cool, golden discs.

your shard sculptures are amazing, have you tried working with Vinyl Records?

Thanks! I'd like to one day, vinyl is a little harder to come across than CDs are though ...

Salvation Army or resale shops, they sell them $0.99 a record or some resale shops will do bundle deals, I got 31 records for 10 bucks and Im in the process of making roses out of them for the holidays.
