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.
Copper. Cupric Nitrate. 26cm tall.
