Steneby Forging Residency
In 2011 Albert Paley traveled with assistant Tyler Guay to Steneby – The School of Craft and Design at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden where for two weeks they worked alongside the students to create 12 large forged sculptures.  The organic form of the sculptures was not planned prior to their creation, but improvised as Paley and his team responded to their material and the creative possibilities of the forging process - tapering, swaging, splitting, upsetting and punching.  As a result, the work can be read both as a series of discrete pieces of expressive sculpture and as a collective document of a process, both intellectual and material. These ten accompanying drawings were developed after the sculptures were completed and represent a further translation of Paley’s process and a doubled exploration of line and form.
