Herbert Ferber was an early pioneer of environmental sculpture whose work discards heavy sculptural mass for open and airy forms. Ferber developed a direct-metal technique inspired by Alexander Calder and Joan Miró of welding scrap metal using an oxyacetylene torch to incorporate a raw, dynamic and flexible quality to his materials. Double One on C was made during the period of his career between 1963 and 1968 when Ferber focused on freestanding, vertical sculptures resembling S-curves, commas and apostrophes.
