A bowl made of melted together plastic army men in two different colors. This bowl was handmade piece by piece by melting each separate army guy into the bowl one at a time.
The idea of melting plastic figures together to form bowl shapes has been around in the art/craft scene for a bit and this is my take on it. I was trying for something not as monochromatic as I've seen in the past and with the different colors you can really see the texture pop out. Due to melting in each piece seperately, the ones at the bottom have been exposed to more heat and get more melty. As you go up the sides of the bowl, the figures start to retain their individual details more and more. All this gives the bowl some interesting texture changes and makes the it look dynamic, like it's in the process of slowly melting in front of you.
Able to hold a light bulb, your wallet and keys, or anything else you might want to put into a bowl that is more colander than not. So yes, it won't hold liquids. As you might suspect.
The bowl has been washed with a mild soap solution after manufacture to help reduce any plastic residue.

NOTE: These photos are representative of this style of Army Men Bowl. Since these Army Men Bowls are handmade, there will be slight differences from one to the next. (The two colors, size and selection of army men figures and original bowl mold are identical from one to another. I'm talking about the variations in which figure is melted into the next.)
