This is a close-up of a counter unit and industrial spring stools, found in the Kitchen. The mosaic portion of the counter top swivels away from the wall to create extra bar/table space for guests. And with the industrial spring bar stools, everyone gets a place t sit...and bounce.
The main counter is a mix of balsa wood Popsicle sticks, string, paper, craft foam, acrylic paint, aluminum wire, and rocks (weight to anchor the mosaic section).
The portion that swivels is made from real glass mosaic pieces, grouted with a mix of craft foam, Polycrylic, and black paint.
The industrial springs are really pipe-cleaners, sealed, painted, and then sealed/painted 2-3 more times after that (They really are springy). The seat portions are plastic bottle tops, stretched out cotton balls, and cotton fabric.
