Foreign Currency

Exploring the theme of immigration I started looking at how I could investigate foreign currency as a sculpturing material. For this experiment I used South African currency, i.e. Rands. What follows are a few of the results of this investigation.

note-burnt
A R20 bill, burnt with incense sticks, placed against a colourful background
note-glazed
A R20 bill, burnt and glazed. The texture after glazing was wonderful!
note-unglazed
A R20 bill, burnt and rolled, not yet glazed. I love the way the light shines through the holes.
note-woven
A R10 bill, cut into strips, glazed and woven together again. Very satisfying.
