George R R Martin quote-Old Stories are like old friends. You have to visit them from time to time.
Old Stories is the rolled and oxidized piece. The piece next to it is one of my See a Penny pieces.
The rust on the piece did get away from me a bit. Less rust would make for an easier read of the code.
Oxidized clip to hold rolled piece.
Removed clip is tucked into one of the oxidized cotter pins at top of piece.
Piece unrolls to 125″. The piece over the lamp is from the *Eroded Contours series. It is bronze and ceramic.
Used the same fixed up paper to make a matchbook like envelope for the notes on the project.
The note paper had to be folded above tuck for the cover. Made an accordion fold with a tab at the top to easily open the accordion.
When the note paper is unfolded, it tucks into the cotter pin at the top for an easy read.
Materials–Paper, Rust, Sheetrock Tape, Fiber, PVA, Metal, Bamboo
Scale–Rolled 27″ x 3″x 4.5″; Unrolled 125″ x 3″ x .25″
Clip was oxidized in a solution of peroxide, white vinegar, and salt.
*Eroded Contours started with the idea, can fired clay embedded in wax survive the bronze casting process and how would bronze with embedded clay function during the glaze process.
