Meniscus is the outcome of applied research which began with the manipulation of sterling silver to create a series of 4cm half spheres. Due to the expense and the making processes normally associated with silversmithing the production of work is usually carefully defined before an object is created. I was interested in questioning the design of an object through the making process. I also wanted to explore how the generation of a series of similar objects (half spheres in this instance) joined together without a definitive outcome in place before hand would evolve. By carefully considering the placement of each sphere and how it was connected to the next sphere (in this instance by silver soldering so the object is rigid) I was also investigating how a rigid object can imply a visual movement.
