This work, as with the other pieces in Moris long running 'Propagation Project' series, hinges on the concept of accidental beauty. It consists of multiples of individually forged components, each subtlely different as a result of a hand-hammering process, connected together to build a chance form, subject to its own highly dynamic, organic logic.
