Thomas Forsyth: Ten Bespoke Brass Nuts

Boy, this video would have come in handy a few weeks ago in the materials and processes class I’m helping teach at NC State…

As hand-made gifts for speakers at the 2011 Build Conference in Belfast, London-based designer and artist Thomas Forsyth fabricated ten “bespoke brass nuts” using old-school sand casting techniques. Each unique piece weighed in at just over half a kilo (about 1.1 lbs). Enjoy the video.
