Another Hairy Knife…Teasing Trevor Two

This is a big knifesculpture……the knife blade is over 2.5 inches deep and the whole piece stands 10 inches high and over 9 inches long.  I wanted to develop a method of adjusting the teasability as well as to use a much hairier body than I had used in the first Teasing Trevor .

I stayed with the Bassetts Liquorice Allsort teaser as it seems to create maximun frustration as well as being visually enticing. Everyone has their favourire Bassetts Allsort this is mine. The sweet can be moved closer or further away from Trevor by turning knobs…giving adjustable teasability.

The Blade is stainless steel  and Corian is used throughout along with other stainless and anodised components.

This fur is  artificial but is of an amazing realistic quality. Working with fur is challenging and I wanted to create the natural flow that animals have from front to back to create a level of realism.

I’m sure I saw Trevor Two wiggle last night and he certainly enjoyed being in front of the camera !
