I have to say, I struggled with this particular fold form technique. It starts with a flat sheet of copper that is scored with a steel wire, and then creased into a 3-dimensional wave. I started with a piece of aluminum and split the entire thing. Trashed. I think it was too thick. This piece went through several rounds of annealing and bending before I began figuring out how to shape it.
The wave shape can be used as a component for jewelry or sculpture. My piece barely passes for use with a key chain... but it was a good lesson.
That's all I have this week! I've been working on my studio again. It has a large cabinet that was used for household storage and had only a rod for hanging clothes. Things were just piled up in there. I've added shelves, drawers, and containers inside -- and got rid of everything unrelated to art in the studio. Finally!
I'm also adding some peg boards for tools and improving the layout in the room. Things are still at that messy stage that happens right before you finish organizing, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Want to see?

Ahhh... this makes me happy :-D
