Playtime with Metal

Anticlastic raising is one of the many metal techniques. It is a surface having two curvatures (transverse to each other) that lie in opposite directions - convex in length and concave in breadth, or vice versa.

Below is a sequence of pictures to show my progression.

WOW! What a wonderful design! I can't imagine trying to be sure all those curves are exactly equal to end up with that final piece. Great work, I'm envious. Teri

Thank you both. To be honest, the final piece there is NOT perfect and doesn't meet exactly point to point. Maybe after a couple dozen more attempts....
