Stray Eggplant is an artistic endeavor, begun in 2004, by artist Laura E.
Gentry. She has sculpted hundreds of eggplants, each with a different random quote, which have been sold throughout the US and in Canada and the UK in Art*o*mat vending machines. This blog is the gallery of eggplant owners. Click the photos to see enlargements. More information about this project is at strayeggplant.com.
On this clip from the March 12 episode of the Rachel Ray show, she explores an Art*o*mat machine--and even experiences a bit of vending rage! There is a Stray Eggplant sitting on top of the machine and in a close-up shot you can see it is the one that says "those blabber mouths"! Enjoy.
