Brass Calendar

This piece was created in the spirit of the calendar as a circular year. I related the undying workability of brass, to the methodic repetition of the calendar year. Twelve months come and go, but we always come full circle back to January, and start fresh. In just the same way, brass can be tarnished, heated, quenched, pickled, sanded, and polished back to the same surface that the artisan began with.
