Doming experimentation

CIMG2452 CIMG2451

I have been experimenting with a technique called doming. This hasn’t led to an actual sculpture yet however I am quite pleased with the initial experimentation. The photos above show my second attempt at doming and the 40lb ball – pein hammer I have been using. The edges need refining a bit as it is slightly deeper on one side then the other. Once I get better at this I will post a how – to guide and also some images of a completed sculpture. I am really excited about this technique because it will bring some new shape possibilities into my work. Also it is so exciting to learn a bit more about the way metal behaves when under pressure and to have the possibility of making slightly more organic forms.
