This ring was based off of the first ring that I made out of paper only this one is made from 3 pieces of copper cut into circles, rolled and textured in the mill, hammered, drilled and wired together with brass wire.
Why handcrafted? “Good work proceeding from the whole man, heart, head, and hand, in proper balance” Clearly something was lacking that mechanized labour did not supply. I have often called it the heartbeat in work. Enthusiasm and play of imagination...it is the degree of life force canalized into a craft. The degree; the purity; the intensity. Handcraftmanship, if it be alive, justifies itself at any time as an intimate expression of the spirit of man. Such work is an end in itself and a means to an end. The relationship of truth to beauty -- the seeing eye. (Bernard Leach The unknown Craftsman 95.)
