Corn Stripper

July 31, 2007


OXO approached TODA with the task of designing and engineering a simple, handheld device intended to assist in the removal of corn kernels from the cob of cooked corn. The objective was to deliver a comfortable, safe and functional product that would meet the product performance requirements.
The end product is this Corn Stripper. In one swift motion you can strip them off into the container. No mess. Sweet.

Landscape Sample Rings?… miniature, artificial worlds within the context of jewelry. Working with model railroad landscape materials to create tiny snapshots of the natural world, scenes that can trick the eyes into believing they are seeing something much larger. In several pieces, this deceit is challenged by the combination of these small constructed natural forms with full scale, cast sterling branches which, in material, are equally unreal and illusionary.
