Unearthing the Shell Along the Way
Uses electroformed copper plant forms which are hand-colored through heat treatment and a cast bronze pistachio shell showing its opening. Electroforming is a metal forming process in which parts are fabricated through electrodeposition on a model. Now, how did I come upon using pistachio shells? Well, while eating pistachios one day, of course. Discerning the shell’s specialness, allowed the artistic feeling to flow into the fingers of reality. It’s this awareness that begins and ends the creative process.
