cones, now in metal

Over the winter I made a series of paper cones using sketchbook paper and a variety of simple mechanisms to hold the ends together. After finishing the series and also looking through my sketchbook, I realized I was more than a little interested in the cone as a form. I then added making cones in metal to my list of things to make in the studio. Recently, I crossed this off my list by making the same cones in copper and starting a series of simple necklaces. The oxidized cones are strung and knotted on red silk cord. The final stage of the process was hanging them on the wall in a graphic manner.

More on flickr including process shots.

Thanks for reading.
