Older study in fold forming

Several years ago I assisted in a workshop taught by Harold O’Connor held here in Tucson. One of the techniques he taught us was fold forming. He called it smash and bash and gave credit to
Charles Lewton Brain.




Here is a piece I created and I incorporated a tapered copper tail and a simple patinated surface.
2"x2.5"

When I first saw this I was Amazed. It continues to cross my mind, now to the point of writing about it. There is something very special about copper. For one thing, time does not destroy it. Rather, it beautifies the material.

You Have Created a piece of art that will last forever. I take my hat off, set it on the ground and leave it there.

My hope is that you continue to pursue and pass on your knowledge. I wish you all the best, my friend and thank you for sharing your creations.
