Fnurra – the process

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?

  1. I live near Philadelphia, which has an extensive system of commuter trains. Both my husband and I have commuted by train and it’s all a very familiar sight to us. I’ve taken lots of photos of the train wires and I love the patterns they make. These earrings are wonderful and I love what you’ve done!

  2. Thank you very much for sharing the fantastic photographic images. For someone who is far less visually ‘in the process’ as it were. These beautiful images are a mix of wonderment; wonder why I can’t seem to do it. Also wonder for the insightful, beautiful way people such as yourself are able to communicate with images. Creating very atmospheric, haunting, thought provoking cameos that have the ability to stay with a person after the page has been turned. Great stuff 🙂

    • Thank you so much for your words, you have no idea how much I blushed when I read your comment… If what I share can mean something to someone else, it also means a lot to me, really! 🙂

  3. It is so nice to see your process and read the inspiration behind it. Your work is art for the ears!
