‘F’ is for foldforming

I’m finding the actual creation of the foldformed letters does not take a great deal of time – but then of course there is always the pre-cutting of the metal, trimming it to size after the foldforming and of course the polishing to bring out the texture of the metal and the highlights and shadows of the folds.

Anyway as you can see ‘F’ has been created as my next A Letter a Week. There is a bit of buckling in the metal - it seems that in creating the twist in the lower fold of the 'F' created a bit of juxtaposed tension in the metal - the things we learn.
