Vase/ Pitcher Interrupted...


An additional set of designs that, in a similar manner to the Meat&Bone designs but through a different set of means, use some of the idiosyncrasies of the FDM process as a feature in the final design... 

In this instance the 'Sparse' setting of the fabrication process - which allows one to save material in thicker bulk/ wall builds by creating a (usually hidden) grid/ lattice within the mass - is here allowed to become 'exposed' in all its perpendicular glory by both, A) manually interrupting the fabrication process mid build to reveal the inner grid and, even before commencing such a build, B) designing the digital file with enough 'residual' volume to allow for such interruptions without the final design appearing 'stumped'... 

More examples of 1:1 FDM design using both the 'Interrupted' and the 'Meat&Bone' technique in future submissions...

Shared Glass Exhibition at Katara Cultural Village, Doha...

'Ressurected' by Amin Matni (Image sourced from designboom


Last week we had an opening at the Katara Cultural Village here in Doha titled 'Shared Glass', displaying the work of both our Graduate Students here at VCUQ, as well as the designers working at Fabrica, based in Treviso, Italy, where also all the pieces were designed and fabricated during the latter half of a ten day workshop this summer... 

I think the work is absolutely brilliant, and provides an appropriate summary of the talents and skills of our students... 

The exhibit takes place in Building 5 at the Katara Cultural Village, and ends on January 7, 2012.
