Commission time: It’s ‘That Infidel Piece’!

It’s been a long time I know since I’ve had chance to update you on recent commission projects, but I’d like to share with you my most recent and most significant commission piece from the not so distant back end of 2014.

‘That Infidel Piece’ is a centerpiece specially commissioned for the historical Girton College in Cambridge – and what a HUGE project it was! The raised and forged 12 separate components were little complete pieces in themselves – fine winding sections alongside heavy chunky curves – all worked tightly against models and line drawings. Most problematic and testing was the final process of building together these unconventional pieces, which were joined by 42 rivets, through 82 fine drill holes! Many hands were needed at that early stage to be able to build together the ‘base’ pieces, and a heartfelt thanks goes out to my neighbour apprentice for her unwavering assistance at that point!
