The first piece of hand hardware

This was made early in semester 1 2012. It was my first exploration into folding the copper, engraving and covering it all up with enamel.  The driving thoughts were what lies underneath is as important as to what the surface shows. There is a great deal under all this that you have to believe is there because it will only become visible when the enamel chips. A revealing of a beauty. The worth of deterioration.
