Best known by his unique transformation of luxury objects into functional everyday tools, New York-base sculptor http://maryboonegallery.com/artist_info/grinnell.html” target=”_blank”>Toland Grinnell recently took on another interesting project. Commissioned by Serge Becker and Matt Goias, owners of Jamaican-centric boutique http://misslilysnyc.com” target=”_blank”>Miss Lily’s Variety, the work Cutlass features all of Grinnell’s artistic signatures. Grinnell started off with an original http://goyard.com” target=”_blank”>Goyard accessory, then re-purposed it into an actual sheath for a machete, complete with matching tassels on its handle. For a final touch-up, he added the Jamaican tri-color of yellow, black, and green, in a similar fashion on how Goyard’s clients personalized their luggage sets. Currently on display at Miss Lily’s Variety in New York City with price available upon request.
