dominic wilcox: war bowl: recycled design

The 'War Bowl' by designer Dominic Wilcox is made by melting model plastic soldiers. There are two versions: the blue Battle of Waterloo, Half British Artillery, half French Infantry and the white 'English Civil War' War Bowl.
Dominic wanted the material that have a voice of it's own, not just a passive product. The dicotemy of the soldiers being a fun childhood toy that brought back happy memories but also representating a narrative about war and it's associated horrors-he finds unsettling.
