Hi everyone!
So since the summer I have now started work as a technician at Loughborough university! I am really enjoying the job and it also means I have access to the facilities for my own work.
With regards to that, since September I have been featured in two exhibitions:

Portal 2013
September 14th – November 9th 2013
Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre, St David’s Road,
Cwmbran, NP44 1PD, Torfaen, Wales.

Lustre 2013
8 – 10th November 2013
Lakeside Arts Centre, University Park, Nottingham NG7 2RD
http://www.lakesidearts.org.uk/Crafts/LUSTRE.html

Both exhibitions were a great success and in conjunction with portal 2013, the shell series was featured on 3D PRINT UK’s website!

Since then, I have had several commissions and interest from online companies and I plan to be far more active on this blog to keep you all up to date with my experiments and projects.
Images from Lustre are to follow.

Final Designs.

Standard

Over the past two weeks, I have been working heavily with Maya to finalise my designs. With the deadlines looming, I managed to book a slot to send my files to the printer and this week the pieces came out!
The final result is brilliant, I am thoroughly pleased with them and I look forward to incorporating hand crafted metal into them. Below are the renders of the final pieces.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) experiments

Standard

Since my last post I have been rather busy with my final project. I have continued with 3d printing and have been experimenting with different forms. The material I am printing in: a poly-metric plastic powder, is fascinating and perfect for my designs. I can create delicate forms without the need for support and the material has a good level of flexibility which gives me a lot of options for my jewellery designs.

Below are a selection of experiments I recently produced. I am particularly pleased with the use of plastic in traditional stone settings.
