I start with random shapes of brass and fold and hammer and anneal and fold more in the general fold-form process and use hammering and stamping and grinding to get surface effects until my sketch works as a piece. I choose one or more of these completed sketches and design a container to work with them as a vase. Once it is assembled and tested for water tightness, the whole piece gets its patinas and finishing.
