What am I peeling?

February 13, 2012

Answer: Clementines. According to Produce Pete, these are the smallest of the mandarin oranges and are imported from places such as Morocco and Spain.

Not only are they delicious, they also are the inspiration for an art project.  In the galleries below, there are nine examples (front and back) of clementine peels manipulated into a variety of shapes.  The two rules for creating these objects are: 1.  use only fingers to peel the clementine, and 2. extract the fruit keeping the peel and the fruit in one intact piece.

Reading from left to right, top to bottom, these are titled: sphere, pinwheel, orchid, dancing zombie, road kill, salamander, orchid 2, snowflake and bunny.  Or you can make up your own titles for them.
