Origami e01 (Pea Pod)
Size: .50” x 2.25" - 2.50”
Materials: Brass, Copper
Techniques: Fold forming
Another favorite metal technique: fold forming with a hammer, especially in time of high stress. A great way to work out one's frustrations without hurting anyone or anything. Best of all, at the end, you have created "beauty!"
In this fold-forming technique, I work the metal by heating then folding it to approximately get a desired outcome. However, I have to remember I am working with metal, a force of nature! This brought back fond memories of my time interning in Japan way back, and learning different age-old Japanese art forms, including origami.
