armour for humans

Currently in his second year of the UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design, Rico Jordi-Slater has a fascination for armour. Having recently created a metal hand piece (pictured) from reclaimed sheet materials including an old cymbal, Rico is now exploring equivalents in the natural world. Working with a batch production process, Rico has cast multiple plaster horse shoe crabs, hand tinting each one with a mixture of inks and paints.

He is now exploring how their forms might be appropriated to create a visually exciting wearable armour for humans.
