Iris – Dakota Myers

2020-2022 | 19×1×19 inches | Forged Steel (No welds)

Iris was a journey into symmetry, conjoined shapes, and puzzling joinery. This process spanned multiple years. Much more time was spent at the drafting board than at the anvil. At first glance what may seem like a simple and harmonious shape, upon further inspection reveals something much more complex and technical. This piece is meant to represent my eye and how I view my craftsmanship.
