Intaglio Collection I & II
Tiny petals are cut from heavyweight printmaking paper and allowed to fall randomly before being imprinted into annealed fine silver sheet via a rolling mill. From these embossed prepared sheets softened geometric forms are constructed using traditional techniques of piercing, forming and soldering. The edges counterpoint the organic either by the fact of the contrasting colour of other metals (rose bronze, red brass and copper), of surface finishes (brushed, burnished or oxidised) or layered.
