I must say that this course has been an experience in itself, I have been able to learn new techniques such as Sand casting, plaster mould making and aluminium casting, whilst also being able to incorporate previous techniques such as computer-aided design as well as my previous experience and confidence in the wood and metal […]

As the brief for the wax casting was to create a pendulum I decided to experiment with this concept. I conducted research upon pendulums and was intrigued by the concept of spirographs, I came across artists and designers such as Conrad Shawcross and Marjolijn Dikman. Shawcross Harmonic Drawings, ADA Project and Loop System Quintet incorporate […]

I chose to create another plaster 2 part mould but this time I used one of the previous CAD designs which I created for inspiration for my lathe work. The form that I created in CAD was heavily influenced by potter wheels as well as my visit to the exhibition at the Pompidou. As previously […]

After tying the mould tightly up with an innertube we poured melted wax into the plaster 2 part mould and left it to cool for 10 minutes. When taking the mould apart in the bucket full of water it was satisfying to see such a detailed wax version of my plaster form. I found the […]

This was my first time making a two-part mould out of plaster, what I have learnt from this process is that it is vital to have a checklist to tick off whilst you are transitioning from step to step. The reason for a checklist has to be because there were multiple times when making this […]

    I recently took part in the charity hitchhike race to Paris and when I and my teammate arrived we decided to go to multiple museums and galleries, but what caught my eye was the gallery in the Pompidou centre.  What excited me as well as expired the forms I chose to create on […]

      From my visit to the Antony Gormley exhibition at the Royal Academy in London I was enthralled by his use of primitive forms to create different compositions of the body. What amazes me is the way in which he is able to transform his array of quick 2D sketches into these 3D […]

  The way in which I selected my final form for the sand casting all started off by exploring geometric forms. This consisted of researching different types of polygons, mathematical and geometric shapes. Some of my own drawings and CAD designs had a heavy influence upon my final outcome. The final shape that I chose […]

I have chosen to experiment with a variety of media when it comes to my adaptive forms not only have I created a series of sketches but also CAD models. I was fascinated by Design 4 of the adaptive CAD forms due to the uneven and multi-faced surface. When sketching adaptive forms by hand I […]
