Hoop Can

An early exploration into the physics of holding standard 13 gallon plastic garbage bags in tension. Really, we needed a trash can for our shoebox Manhattan apartment and found most extruded plastic offensive. I was also interested in the challenge of fitting tenon shoulders to a curved surface (usually they are straight, here the legs attach to a curved surface). White ash and bronze rod. The bag overlaps the top and is twirled tight before being pinched by the bronze rod at the top. L 18 x W 18 x H 26
