The prize statuette

1 water jet under very high pressure cuts a statuette from a piece of sheet steel. Beam is controlled by software that uses Petter Antonisens model outline. The high pressure of one millimeter wide water jet makes it easy to cut through a 25 millimeter thick steel plate. Even thicker plate of Publishing Prize Grand Prix is cut just as easily. 3 When raw steel pieces Have arrive at Artist Bo Anderssons workshop north of Stockholm, his first action is using rotary sander to tackle the most serious irregularities. 4 With metal file, Bo Andersson then smooths the remaining sharp edges. Now the statuette is ready for electroplating with copper. 5 rust is go. The statue is smooth and clean. It is now ready to be plat with copper. 6 statuette is immersed in a bath. Copper atoms migrate from piece of copper through liquid in the bath and stick to steel surface. Balls on liquid surface are there to reduce evaporation. 7 After about 25 minutes of electroplating, the copper layer is thick enough. 8 surface of steel is entirely covered with copper. Now several hours of patination work remain. 9 copper-plat statuette is brushed with hydrochloric acid for upcoming patination. 10 After a number of hours in ammonia vapour, statuette has received its mute tones. 11 statuettes are now ready for the Prize Ceremony. Patination is individual, and each statuette is unique-no winner receives a statuette that is exactly like anyone else
