Eddie Colla – “BLNT” Limtited edition boxes and originals at 1xrun.com

I am releasing a new edition at 1xrun.com this coming Tuesday July 22nd at 9am PST. “BLNT” is an edition of 35 wood cradled boxes 10×20 inches. The boxes are treated with and iron based reactive paint and screen printed. After the screen printing is done they are put through a chemical process to rust them.BLNT-2upAngle-2SQ

Each box has an individual brass plate with the title and edition number engraved in it. Each plate goes through and acid bath to crate a unique patina on the brass. Stamp-and-Plate-2 Back

The Back of each piece is has my logo burnt into it with a branding iron and there is also a small note that gives some context to the piece.Detail-SqDue to the organic nature of the rust the pieces vary quite a bit and no 2 are the same. This edition is definitely the most elaborate edition I have done. There are about 9 different processes to go through with the various elements before they are completed. 20140620_120817 20140628_165736 20140701_163750 20140702_142104 20140702_171418 20140702_172908 20140620_120823In Addition to the editioned boxes there are 3 originals that will also go on sale with this drop.
