A bowl made of melted together plastic army men in two different shades of green. These guys are a bit larger than the other army men I use, and they are in the classic poses based on the playsets from the 50's and 60s. 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 and melty as I've seen in the past and with melting each piece separately, it preserves the details in the plastic more consistently. 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 concrete light bulb 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.

Size: 6.5" diameter, 3.5" tall
