Crack, Crack, Crackity

Continuing Project Doolittle, which honors the Pixies’ amazing album, we tackled “Crackity Jones” this week.

During Christmas clean-up of the house we found three jars of colored stones which were probably intended for plant pots but we had bought them with some unspecified future design project in mind. And this turned out to be the perfect opportunity to try them. (Also our older son had so much fun with helping that this turned out to be a perfect family activity, too.)

And yes, we designed the letters digitally before we made them tangible.

Four more songs to go – and we’re working on it.

    I love it! Yesterday I was looking online for a marble supplier and found one who also supplies this kind of colored glass + acrylic rocks. Thanks for the great example in using that material.

    • You’re welcome! Ours are from Ikea but they only had these very Swedish colors:)
