Measuring Tools

 Working in collaboration with (Maybrey Reliance Foundry)

The project aims to give domestic measuring tools a greater value
during their downtime, celebrating the tool and preventing
them being tucked away in a drawer. Turning these tools
into decorative objects by simplifying them and giving
them striking forms gives the objects both a place on
a shelf or in a display cabinet as well as being functional
tools when you need them. Casting the tools in iron gives
them a timeless quality and a further sense of permanence
to most common utilitarian tools.
