As I mentioned in my previous post, the cables above the railroad inspired me to think of earrings and perhaps a pendant. The ideas kept cooking in my mind.
I made some first sketches, that I wrote about here. The very first piece was a simple one in copper and brass, a first raw translation of these cables into metal.
It did not come out very playful and over time, with the pieces put away for long periods, the ideas kept changing. I realised I could leave the whirl element entirely free and simply have it entangled in the structure around it.
Thank you all railroad engineers/electricians for offering this inspiration to us passengers as we wait or pass by. I know nothing about the practicalities of providing electricity to the very complex system it is to have trains running and signals being sent and received.
What I do know is that I love the cables.
Dear people, next time you are near the railroad, raise your eyes and have a good look. Let me know if you find any gorgeous cables, will you?
