RAW: Week 3


RAW: week 3
Copper
Origami Pelican

Continuing to work with origami this week. This form was a lot of fun. Switching to 24 gauge copper definitely saved me some frustration. Although his beak should be more elongated for a pelican, I still think he is a fine specimen.

  1. Using silver or copper clay "paper" sheets can make it easier for you...

  2. Thanks Sylvia!

    Susanna, I like the suggestion, unfortunately, I have no experience with metal clay or access to a kiln. However, I am going to change that at some point so that I can explore my paper clay ring forms in metal.

    I recently received the book Foldforming by Charles Lewton-Brain, and these origami pieces have been perfect for learning the basics.
