I started off looking at the word 'curves' and after generally looking at spirals and curved objects I decided to make the letters themselves curve. I cut the letter 'A' out of black cardboard and placed it in a glass of water, and then photographed it at many different angles and positions. I really liked the distorted effect the water had on the letters, and so after changing the theme to 'reflection' I carried on this technique with the rest of the alphabet. 'Pane in my glass' is made up of my favourite shapes that came out of this experimentation.


This is working very well for your theme! Also love the name of your font haha

C looks like a G. Other than that, great!

Thank you for the advice I was actually thinking about lowering the end of the 'C' because someone else said it looks like an 'O'
