Metal is one of the most amazing material to work on, but also one of the most challenging. Before I started, I decided to document this intricate process by filming a time-lapse of the project which you can find in the article.

The piece tells a story which is set in an unspecified future during a monstrosity war which takes place in Japan.

Through this transformation, I wanted to express the importance of craftsmanship which I feel is somewhat being lost in this day and age where technology is taking over most aspects of life. The process through which I create my work is a commitment to patience and a rebellion against the immediacy that surrounds us.
