The Thread Wrapping Machine

This amazing device captured my attention today; a thread wrapping machine developed by Anton Alvarez. The machine is used to join different types of material together using only a glue-coated thread. The result? Fantastic, colourful pieces. 

"I wanted to create an externalised joint that would enable me to combine a big range of different materials that normally would require very time consuming methods of jointing them together. At the same time a decorative pattern appears with the different colours of the thread."
