I spent week 3 taking a third off the closed form and closing it, taking a third off the remaining two thirds and closing that until I ran out of time.
The piece became several pieces each was great to hold and could be fitted back together as a 3d puzzle.
The surfaces took different colours, the solder flooded the joints and each piece had different small openings to look through. Like the streets there was an historic outside and a glimpse of the inside, a suggestion of many lives enclosed.
As I made new thirds I became short of material and had to patch the brass and piece in some copper.
Doris was not able to give a final crit, but I was pleased with how my aesthetic came through strongly, how each piece is so tactile and how the object was inspired by Florence.
I discussed with Elisa and Marcia how a series of brooches might be made from the piece and also maybe replicating an inside piece in silver.
I was pleased with what I achieved and can see the approach being hugely useful in my work.
