Finally we're onto the project I've been looking forward to all module. A tussey mussey.
Most people had never heard of such a thing, but I'd bought my mother one many (many) years ago.
They were brooches popular with the Victorians, that were in the form of a tiny vase that could hold a flower or small poesy. I've created a Pinterest board for research.
Despite being told that this was our chance to design something ourselves, the structure of the piece was very specifically dictated (must be fabricated using a cone, dome and tube) leaving very little room for individuality.
Another limitation of the design was that it must be constructed entirely from a provided piece of sheet. This meant that we had to work out a very specific cutting plan in advance.
I started thinking about possible designs over the weekend and jotted down a lot of ideas.
