Earlier this year, we were approached by Jewellery and Object student Rebecca Waterfall who required a number of laser cut stainless steel parts to form part of her final project.
Cut from 2mm 304 grade stainless steel, the 190 metal squares each measured 100 x 100mm and featured slots allowing the squares to be interconnected together.
We took time to speak with Rebecca to uncover the inspiration behind her sculpture, as well as understanding how these seemingly regular parts can come together to form a visually striking sculpture.
