Sorry for the delay, all. Here are the identities of the last round of objects (for those who haven't seen the last round, find them here:
#8: I marveled at this little personality when it came tumbling out of my Special K box one morning - as I was about to post my mystery objects, I thought it was an obvious sign from the breakfast gods. Couldn't bring myself to eat it though - it's now in my studio, awaiting.
#9: Corner bumper from an old suitcase - dragged from the Deer Island Dump in 1996.
#10: One of my early found items - it's the side panel from a champagne corkscrew, circa 1830's. It's one of the objects I think I would have wanted to save intact, but what did I know then??
#11: A fulgurite. This beautiful natural object occurs when lightning strikes sand or soil and fuses the surrounding ground into glass. Peering into the hole, you can think of it as a negative of a lightning bolt. Amazing. More info on fulgurites here.
#12: Good guessing, all - it is indeed a pierced brass cage for a work light, here shown open. I've flirted with making this into goggles since I found it way back.
#13: This is the inner plastic seal from a drink bottle, encrusted with sea life. Found on the beach.
#14: No one got this one. It's a Roman-era horse boss, which is a bronze decoration attached to the animal's harness.
Thanks for playing to those who gave it a whirl, it was very fun.
Lots to post in the coming week - firstly, I'll announce the winner of my upcoming DVD - those who sent me images of their own mystery objects were eligible. Look for that in a few days. Following that, I'll start you on the in-progress journey of my new sculptural object - another series of firsts for me. It's still being made now in my studio, and is coming along well - and is really unlike anything else I've made.
