Two Mini Toasters and Two Toasts Limited Edition Enamel Pin
****One purchase per person for the first 30 minutes after drop time please****
*** This is for TWO TOASTERS AND TWO TOASTS ***
A fun reference to one of the original Rutherford designs, the Toaster of Truth! These minis are a two-piece design, the Toaster and Toast could be mixed and matched, or worn on their own!
The Toaster of Truth was one of the very first designs I drew many moons ago. It traveled with us to many festivals, starting at Okeechobee. Some of you I met for the very first time with that pin! It was a special time with a special design. I’ve drawn toasters for a long time and it was so much fun to really zone in on the possibilities of something so simple and rather silly. The Toaster, like all of the appliance series, is created from a series of glyphs. To me, the glyphs appear as though they almost say something, like there’s a code just under the surface. My hope is to ask- If language can work to shape and define our reality, then what type of language would define a reality just beyond what we know as possible? What kind of person could you be? What could we accomplish together? Perhaps the glyphs from a reality beyond, forming something as ordinary as an appliance, could serve as a reminder for what is possible when we keep exploring, and seek to find what inspires us even in the smallest places. It’s an ongoing project, but this concept flows through the appliance series, and this mini hopes to celebrate that in a small package.
