Machined with 6061 Aluminum and 360 Brass.
Project guidelines were to design and prototype 3 of the same object: one that I keep, one that I give to a friend, and one that I sell and give the proceeds to the Studio for Contemporary Craft. The project explores how "we might create objects that can endure beyond their present to exist across generations."
