The Colonial Turd series are a group of rockers designed for children. The Turds are constructed with recycled post-consumer cardboard pulp. Each rocker is colored with a different natural dye indigenous to North America. The handle are also constructed with North American hardwoods, respectively. My aim with this project was twofold. I set out to create durable, heirloom quality toys with a disposable material. The processing of cardboard into pulp transforms the material and creates an abstracted, sculptural object. These rockers might have a second life as a art piece in a designed interior.
However, the rockers are also an exercise in planned obsolescence. This project was designed around the reality of children growing up and, therefore, "aging out" of their interest in childhood toys. These rockers were designed to be disposed of, incorporating recyclable materials for every bit of their construction.
