Fold Form in a Box (2018)

All I want to say is that cutting and filing a wavy fold form made from thin springy copper to fit it into a square box tested my patience. And my sanity. I can’t remember whether there was swearing, but I hope not.

The fold form came from a summer school course at Morley College with Paul Wells. Fold forming is a lot of fun, but it can be hard to turn the shapes into wearable items. I don’t wear this much, because it’s heavy, but I still like the contrast between the wavy organic copper and the shiny square silver box.
