Copper. 2018

Made entirely from copper, this piece was die-formed using a hydraulic press, forging, and pierce-work. 

I made this piece to use the Law of Closure and to demonstrate that everyone is connected on this planet. We so often forget that we only have one planet and that we are all on it together. We quickly separate ourselves from each other, when really we're all that we have. We are all connected in one way or another. We all need each other to survive. Perhaps we can one day realize this and strive to make humanity better.
