Martha made the original Honeycomb Tessellation Form by hand carving a piece of scrap plastic and fabricating a top using thermo-plastic pellets. After a year of collaboration with Dallas Vinson at JFF Jeweler Supply and Curbell Plastics and the creation of four prototypes, the manufactured Honeycomb Tessellation Form became a reality. It is designed to make wavy discs of various sizes that can be soldered together to form a honeycomb pattern or used separately as elements in jewelry, hollowware, flatware and sculpture. The Form works well with Silver, Copper, Aluminum, Brass and Nugold; with 20 gauge to 26 gauge sheet metal; and with 10 gauge and smaller wire. The Form can also be used in a hydraulic press. If you are interested in purchasing a Form, you can do so by attending one of Martha’s workshops. The Form can also be purchased at:
