Catalogue Description:
An elongated cuff of organic, abstract forms made from two layered sheets of metal. The smaller top layer echoes the forms of the bottom layer, and the two are soldered together in some areas and in others pulled apart. Patination is used on the bottom layer to define the overlapping of the top layer.
