Electroforming

Electroforming.. my new favourite technique!

In my few months as exchange student at Pforzheim design school in Germany, I discovered the technique.  And when I got back I was lucky enough to have a dad that could build me my own electroforming machine.  Basically electroforming is covering anything with metal by chemical reaction. Here are some pics of my electroforming done in Germany and in my studio.  But the experimenting still continues…
