This is a redevelopment of the very basic pewter cast of rope i did last semester. I wanted to try and confuse the hard/soft contrast in my work in a different way, transforming something that was created soft into something that is hard. Aesthetically i feel these are quite interesting, however verging on slightly jewellery like which i feel is not something i am after. I do however like the scale and tactility of them, you can't help but pick them up and give them a feel. The weight is also interesting as when they where crochet they were as light as a feather but when transformed into pewter they are really quite heavy. Maybe using the two together, soft crochet and hard pewter could be something to explore, using the weight imbalance of the two to create tension?
