SELECT FINE CRAFT BY CINDY CHINN

Every now and then I have some spare time and I get to make one of my ideas a reality. This page is for fun projects that don't really fit in any particular category, but use a lot of my different skills.

Many of these projects have been entered in the Nebraska State Fair's "Fine Craft" division. I have a lot of fun with them, from the idea to figuring out how I'm going to build it to completing the actual project.

Have a look through and if you have a crazy idea for a commission piece, let me know and we'll make it happen!

What's more practical than a top hat with a birdcage on top it? Inside the cage is mechanical bird that moves and sings when motion is detected.
I further accented it with a variety of materials.

This was my first hat and I had a lot of fun designing it. Inside the attic there is a light that glows an eerie blue (the switch is on the front).

This was a project I did for the Tabitha Health Care Group in Lincoln Nebraska. The idea was to take a rocking chair and modify it. The group then auctioned them off at a fund raising event.

Sometimes ideas can take a tour into the dark side. These fun diversions evolve over time and the 'captured fairy' series was an enjoyable one.

We all wear masks at one time or another. Sometimes is fun to capture these moments in clay. This is an ongoing project.
