These rings, made by Wes Airgoode are forged from solid pieces of copper rods with sterling bands. They were started by drilling a large hole in the rods and then are forged larger over stakes and the sterling silver bands are inserted after.

What I enjoy about these rings is the gestural quality to them.  They stand at vicarious angles and they appear to be almost falling over, which gives them tension and movement.  These rings are about the process of forging and how the process directly influence the final pieces.
