Mould making

Not sure how sound or neccessary my current course of action is, but being in the workshops gives me peace and time to think. I am trusting the making at the moment- the responses I have had so far to my pieces based on iphones has been along the lines I was hoping for, so I am pursuing that idea further.

The bronze I cut the ‘brute’ facsimilies from was alu-copper alloy, base, valuable, soft.


The previous sand-casting was more traditional, scrap bronze. It resembled a relic.

Following the idea of the conductivity of copper and the high copper content of bronze (about 95%) I am continuing to transform this familiar tactile object we use to connect with people over distance into something which forms a direct contact between people as they pass it to one another.
