Pressing metal

Copper disks on which I drew a bathymetric map of the Great Pinnacle and Twin Peaks, scuba diving sites at Point Lobos State Park.  I etched the disks and then shaped the form in a hydraulic form press.  These are samples for my metal class.  We will  saw the forms and then we will learn to make knuckle hinges from tubes to join the two sides together.
