Old Growth by AbandonedMemory Old Growth by AbandonedMemory
This piece is connects us with the family tree of forgotten memories. My work uses old vintage photographs from the late 1800s early 1900s and are of people who have been detached from there family and memory connected to them. All they have left of their legacy is there picture.

I finished this last fall semester and i'm just now getting around to taking pictures. >.< Reticulated brass, blistered copper, sterling silver filigree, and sterling silver is backing all the pieces. Also all the pieces have been burnished on the edges to give them a line of shine

The suggester said: "Metal smithing is an underrated/not well known area of art. The amount of time, precision, and attention to detail can often be over looked."

Fabulous flow! What's the overall size of this thing? It looks HUGE. I'd wear it anyway, because you seldom see mixed metal done in this exact way. It's an almost narrative piece, which definitely seems to be what you intended. Great work.
