Week 13: Dissecting a Vintage Hairdryer

I found this wonderful little vintage hairdryer at a thrift store and thought it would be perfect for disassembling.

Disassembling some of the parts was quite simple, but for others I wasn't sure it could be done without breaking something. Once I had them all separated, I polished up the pieces and spent about an hour assembling the them. Here is the result:

Now, I wanted to put my own spin on this project and it happened so beautifully as I was in the midst of arranging my pieces. So then I just ran with it.

What I enjoyed the most: Once I got going with creating faces with the pieces, I could have gone for hours. Taking random objects and transforming them into something unique is a great exercise in creativity.

Next time I would... Work inside. It was a nice day and I decided to work on this from the backyard. But then I had to deal with the wind moving my objects around, the harsh light of the sun, and even a few pesky magpies.
