Geometry

2015

A one week project looking into geometric shapes and angular forms; an eagerness to continue experimenting in the workshop, culminated in these forms being produced. Inspiration came from looking at work by Peter Trevelyan, then through trial and error I started brazing copper wire together using brass solder. Starting with six pieces of copper coming out of a fixed vertex, I moved along each new point as it came, thus organically creating a structure that could stand on its own. Each piece is unique with it’s own tilt and composition. I really like the shadows cast by the frames when a tealight is inside, as the dark lines come off at unexpected angles and create a space for the light to move about in. I used different woods for the bases to highlight the differences in each piece. There is a mixture of oak, ash and maple here.
