The Toaster Project

This is the toaster that Royal College of Art graduate Thomas Thwaites built from scratch over the course of 9 months in an attempt to replicate a cheap, mass-produced model. He mined and smelted the metals, made the plastic, moulded and wired the whole thing. The result: something that reminds me of Joseph Beuys or Anselm Kiefer’s work. The message: as my friend Sascha Pohflepp remarked, There’s no going back.
