This is one of a series of sculptures made mainly from machine stampings, that is to say from the lengths of metal remaining after strips have been fed into a machine which stamps out circular discs, ovals and such-like. Anthea Alley first began to work with these in 1962 and has used a variety of metals and patterns (usually only one kind in each piece) to obtain effects of transparency, space and movement.
