Untitled Pattern (in metal) #4 by Melissa Cameron


A book of images of my artwork. The pictures make the connection between the jewellery works and their source, a pattern drawn in AutoCad by the artist, laser cut into a single sheet of stainless steel. The pieces made from this flat material make three-dimensional objects, echoing the translation from page to object of the book itself.
