I have a vice. I really love Jawbusters jaw breakers. It was a bad thing when I found that the local Walgreen's carried them in their "retro" candy section. For today's piece I wanted to create a piece made from the wrappers of the candy I so love.
Previously, all the pieces I've made have been rings. For this piece, it seemed logical to create a piece for the mouth. This is a really funny object, and kitschy, but nonetheless it speaks to my addiction to the hard crunchy jawbreakers.
