Toaster

About this object

Toaster has been made from number 8 gauge fencing wire to be used over an open fire. This gauge of wire was that most commonly used for fencing paddocks for stock. The wire has been shaped to form a square and then folded and a double length twisted to form a handle. Two shorter pieces of wire have been used to cross the squares so the bread will not fall out. Two pieces have been made in this way then joined to make the toaster.
