Project Description

Anticlastic raising

We had an intensive 5-day workshop learning the basics of anticlastic raising, taught by the master himself, Juha Koskela. His Instagram.

#1: All the pieces I made during the workshop.
#2: The teacher (Juha Koskela) and the student (me).
#3: Hyperbolic paraboloid. Oxidised. My hands were a mess after hammering that for two days. Worth every minute. Video of the piece, 2nd slide.
#4: The process behind making an anticlastic bracelet and rings.
#5: Sculpture made from three pieces and then soldered together. The oxidising chemical didn’t work properly so I’m a bit disappointed at the result. I’ll have to remove it someday.
