Ella Merriman Pewter/ Cuttlefish Casting

These experiments were a continuation of my Reflections project. I wanted to cast forms that could be joined and worn on the hands. However, when discovering the versatility of pewter as a material I was able to take these experiments further, forming imprints on coin like pieces. I began thinking about currency and using these discs as references to the place they have originated from.

Leanne Kennerson – Experimenting

I was interested in the contrast of textures between the wool fibres and resin. This test has intensified the wool cuttings and transformed them.
