These are the parts of the main form for the new piece. I say main form because the piece will be an interaction between two forms.This is a device I have often thought of using but for some reason seem to shy away from.

The following shots show the process of fabricating the upper part of the smaller form.


This photo shows a piece of annealed copper screwed two one side of the mould.


Now it has been hammered around the form with a soft tipped hammer in order to shrink the copper around the form.


The other side has been hammered round and the parts trimmed to fit with tinsnips.


Here the pair are roughly assembled and their relationship is about to begin!
