Wanting to use the CNC, I convinced Kendra, my partner for this assignment, that making a piece of furniture that did not require fasteners was the way to go. It would essentially be a puzzle. Continue reading Puzzle
I like variation and wanted to crete a piece of art that could be changed. Using the iris mechanism, I can achieve movement. Continue reading Midterm – Movable Art
I decided to make a kinetic sculpture. By definition, kinetic art is an art form, such as an assemblage or sculpture, made up of parts designed to be set in motion by an internal mechanism or an external stimulus, such as light or air. Continue reading Midterm – brainstorming
My partner Nicole and I wanted to make a geometric shape, something simple. After a quick brainstorm we decided to make a diamond box. The shape’s top would be a hexagon and many sides, a combination of triangles. We found these shapes to use as guides for our illustrator drawing. Continue reading Box assignment – Diamonds
I drew a teapot that I have at home and worked to divide the sections so I could replicate it for printing. The teapot has three distinct parts: the handle, the body and the lid. I would print the lid and the handle separately then print the body. The body is circular but has a protruding part for the spout. Here are my renditions:
I think if my teapot was fabricated using acrylic the handle would definitely break. After considering this, the best approach would be to print the handle along with the body of the teapot so that it is more secure. The handle needs to carry the weight of the entire teapot when filled with liquid, so it needs to be stronger.
