forged steel text pieces in progress
Here are some in progress images of two new forged steel text pieces. These works draw upon my knowledge of forging techniques to explore slang terminology, folk etymologies, and other forms of truncated language.
These sculptures began as elements of the steel matrix I used to make a series of branded woodblock prints and grew into two distinct forged steel panels. Now that these pieces are roughed out, I am going to spend time cleaning them up and figuring out how they are going to be displayed.
