Fabric Campbell's Soup Can
Recently I began another project for Uni, making a container using unconventional materials. Stuck for ideas, I bought the December issue of Vogue which included a jewellery feature inspired by pop-art. The jewellery was displayed on plasticine replicas of Campbell's soup cans. I loved how the iconic soup cans had been re-invented and wanted to do something similar for my container. I used pastel colours and hand-embroidered the decoration to make the can more feminine and therefore contrast with the original. I really like the use of unconventional materials, using fabric to create the can. I think the re-invention of something classic can be really exciting!
I really love my can and am so happy about the result!
