I Used to Sketch Things

Hand-Pierced Brass

Teapot: 7" x 6.5" x 1.5"; Cup:2" x 3" x 0.75" 

Taken from sketches of tea pots, this piece explores the intersection of 2D and 3D representation. By using a jeweler's saw to transform the hastily drawn lines of sketches into a more permanent material, I use the illusion of dimension created in line drawings to create a dimensional form.
