Glenn Elliott's House of Cards
Local sculptor, Glenn Elliott, has turned his hand to the card table and has created a deck of oversized playing cards out of mild steel with picture overlays. Using very small earth magnets the cards can be assembled into a variety of sculptural works based on traditional House of Cards patterns. The pictures above show some of the designs Glenn has created but the possibilities are endless. You can create your own House of Cards sculptures at home using the steel deck of cards, supplied earth magnets and hinges and a helpful book with a number of patterns. It is a perfect interactive art work!
