A Weight Of Memories
The versatility and properties of lead has always intrigued me and I wanted to experiment with transferred photographic images. It posed a number of problems as the lead was easy to use but very soft and to all intent and purposes I wanted it to be opened and read as a book with mini family stories and groupings played out as images. Additional sewn copper wire / brass tubing and some aluminium resin to add texture and some rigidity.
Unique. This was intended to be a very personal family piece and the title a ‘weight’ of memories says it all.
