I began my form exploration by observing shapes I inherently found alluring – naturally occurring crystals and symbiotic organisms. I admire the duality of the polished and textured surfaces, transitions in color, reflection of light, and how juxtaposing materials come together.
The foil hammering method I came across by chance. I was instantly captivated, and could not continue with my project until I tried it—and perfected it—myself.
To speed up my form development process, I used Chavant plasticine to explore interactions with the felted components.
Final production involved days of hammering, sanding, buffing and felting.
