Magnetic Drawings

Lydia creates magnetic drawings by suspending iron filings in a substrate - a technique she personally developed during her undergraduate degree. The drawings are formed by arranging and layering ferrite magnets to create complex patterns. Permanently suspending the iron filing reveals the intricate patterns created by magnetic field lines.

The magnetic drawings are float-mounted and framed behind glass, to reveal the shadows formed by the iron filings. Framed magnetic drawings, similar to those pictured above, are approx. 64 x 64 x 3cm. Commissions are available at any size and pattern - please contact Lydia for more information.
