Our second project in Hollowware was to learn to solder joints, and make a 5 sided cube.

And then there are the hours (literally) of sanding and polishing and elbow grease to get it to look like this....
After learning how to make cubes we were given a project to design something that would hold an egg.
Starting with the basic concept of a cone, I explored many variations before coming up with this one.
