Height 60 mm
Diameter 220 mm
Unique piece, June 2012
Irisidea was made entirely by hammering a sheet of cooper. After hammering and planishing, I put a wax mixture inside my piece. This mixture allows to drill and emboss the metal without distortion. I made a nickel plate inside then I realised that there was a black and blue patina. Finally I glued pikes and beads of Murano glass made with the glass yarn technique.
