Beaten metal

I must say I am really enjoying beating copper and brass from the roadside junk stash into bowls to be used as elements of pieces for the November exhibition. Can’t say the work always goes the way I want it to but in the end some of the shapes and patinas are developing well.

It has been quite a lot of fun also working out the uses and patterns of different hammers. I have had to supplement my anvil with a few additional ‘anvils’ made out of pipe and other found objects to create the shapes I want.
