A New Son


An exploration of the material qualities of Aluminium by the designer to discover, learn and add value to what is thought of as a mundane material. Through the investment of over 200 hours of hand hammering 75 sheets (200x200mm) of 1.5mm thick aluminium all joined with over 1500 rivets, a bond was created between the craftsman and this humble material.  

This piece captures the meeting between man and material as the curiousness between them grows.

Manual labour allowed the designer to muse over the material to develop a physical connection to painstakingly create the overall form. It celebrates the value of time and the relationship that has formed between designer and material.
