The project: Design and fabricate display stands for some African Tribal Artifacts.
The customer called these “cotton needles”. The look similar however, the differences created a challenge. Since they would be displayed as a pair, the design had to accommodate the differences but the stands needed to look identical.
The solution was to incorporate the copper coated wire element to hold and support the darkened part of the needles so that it could be easily adjusted.
The round base made a statement almost like an exclamation point!
