this is a video featuring the fold forming process with Large Scaled non ferrous elements. THIS is my first video bear with me as I figure out what works best. This video is low res :( .....I'll be resizing and changing it out later. enjoy.....bill

glad the video is being well received. I'm still trying
to figure out the best type of compression for the
highest quality viewing. I'd be open to anyone with
tips. :)

thanks for viewing.

I love this video. I have done some tiny pieces but
this is very inspiring - love the hammer too, have to
do it by hand!

I can't think of anything more fun than
evolving metal from sheet to form. Whether it's fold
forming, forging, chasing/repousse, your video is
inspiring for all who love whacking sheet into art! />Kay

Oh so helpful! I have the book but I didn't really get
how the metal curled like that. Thanks!

great work, as usual. Loved seeing your
hammer pounding away. I love Charles Lewton Brain's
Form Folding, yours is a totally grand perspective. />Thanks for the video.
