The Seamstress began life as a flat sheet of copper. Once the 'seam' has been created the metal is manipulated using my hands with various steel and wooden stakes to create a fluid wave shape.
Patina is applied to the inside, giving a contrast between the cold smooth exterior and the warm and subtly textured interior. The cold connection was inspired by stitched seams seen in textiles and also some construction processes.
A stylish yet understated sculpture, the Seamstress will fit quietly into any interior.
Copper. Cupric Nitrate. 26cm tall.
