3D Print Residency

Here are some behind the scene shots from my recent residency over the summer with Design Wales at PDR, Makers Using Technology.  I spent 2 months learning to use freeform software and a haptic arm that allows you to virtually carve clay on the screen.  The prints I came out with were cured resin and printed in layers supported by wax structures.  I created a range of mouthpieces from 3d scanning birds wings at The National Museum Of Wales in Cardiff.  Inspiration also came from a collection of bones and other natural history I have collected.  I manipulated multiple wing segments and fitted them directly on a virtual face to get the right scale and fit. 

The final pieces can be seen under 3d print in the jewellery gallery on my site and more information about the residency can be found here:
