Laporkstein, an artist who’s been drawing his whole life, didn’t have a lot of prior experience working with metal. After one year of mulling over the idea, a few weeks of research, and a couple of days practicing on ordinary metal, he took his meteorite chunk and made thin rectangular strips from it. He then attached the strips together layer by layer and fashioned them into a ring.
There’s an image gallery here. Pretty cool!
