Scissor Harpy

My camera has died, and so I am afraid the pictures will be a bit, well, crap, until payday when I can afford to get another one. My cell phone camera leaves a lot to be desired.

The Dream Cutter

This isn't quite finished, I am waiting on a contribution from the Canada geese it was made in honor of. The little buggers' honking cuts through my early morning dreams several times a week. I need to collect two more good feathers to finish it off.

This is intended as a sort of "anti-dreamcatcher". It is made of a pieces of scrap metal, cuticle scissors, goose feathers, paint, florist wire, twine and jet glue.

Novel Scissor Designs

It seems like most designers are content to redesign the same objects over and over, chairs, wrist-watches and shoes etc. But Efrat Gommeh devotes some time to the humble pair of scissors coming up with a plastic fold out design and a pair that can be operated with just your fingers.
