The torso in the photo is formed from a single piece of sheet copper, there is no seam. It is hollow with the opening at the bottom edge. It stands about eight inches high. This piece was a milestone in my effort learning to raise copper. It represents how far I've come in three years. I had the foresight to take pictures at each cycle of hammering and heating. Unfortunately, I didn't have the foresight to have extra batteries for my camera and so the series only shows the top half of the torso being formed.
