This piece is a companion piece to Capacitor with Blue

“Capacitors are one of the most common electrical components in the world. Even if you don’t know what they are, you have undoubtedly seen one (or several) on a circuit board. They come in several forms, but their purpose is to store electrons and therefore the electric charges needed to run the whole thing.

Within this I find them fascinating objects and simple as their forms are, they can make for some really interesting shapes made in wire

This piece is drawn from a Capacitor found inside an old VCR circuit board.”

Finding the perfect aspect of its counterpart was a challenge for this piece, unlike other pieces there was no obvious central feature. As a result I ended up using a much larger section of the object. It surprisingly made for one of my personal favourite piece in the collection.
