The Final Day

Another late night here at the Hackney Wick studio and this time it was all about the mathematics of creating such unusual shapes. Ed spent hours scrupulously measuring lines onto the blocks ready to transform them into 3D hexagons, parallelograms, pentagrams and so on. In the meantime, the lengthier strips of leather spent the night soaking in the glue that was applied yesterday. Apparently the longer the glue sets, the stronger the block will be after it has been compressed.
