Fabrication Week #5 – Two Materials – Copper Pipe & Cellophane

I really wanted to work with copper pipes and chose to use iridescent cellophane, a material that contrasts it tough, industrial feel. I bought a 10 foot piece of pipe from the hardware store, street tees, and a pipe cutter. I used glue for the pipe connections and to attach the cellophane and also tape to keep the cellophane in a conical end so it tapers down.

When I cut the pipes I smushed the ends and then needed to hammer them back into place to fit into the street tees.

I’m interested in expanding on this and doing a maze like sculpture incorporating light and sound.
