After looking through my previous work I knew I wanted to create something just a beautifully detailed as my last piece and that I wanted the pieces to feel magical and fun. I also wanted the ring to fit into the piece in different ways and set out to disguise the ring within the piece so it isn't as obvious to see when it is encased in the sculptural stand.
The main idea of my project was to produce four hero pieces which accompany my existing hero piece 'Jonah and the Whale'. From these pieces I would design and produce at least three more commercial designs.
As I wanted the pieces to be quite fun I researched into the different ways to add colour to my work so I could intensify the details and bring the story out of the piece. Therefore I had been thinking of using enamel and researched into a company called Capricorn which specialize in cold enamel. .
Above are my initial sketches and ideas for each hero piece!
