The Comet Vase...


Another project from the archives. The Comet Vase was an early attempt at making something both 'practical' as well as directly reflective/ innate to the means of fabrication. In this instance FDM was used to make the design. 

In an early rendition of the vase the stl file geometry was faulty, resulting in the top end of the piece being partially unwound, a 'fault' that was allowed to remain and become a feature in the final design. 

The vase consists of a set of hollow, extruded, tear-drop-shaped, cylinders or pipes that have an opening at the top, and taper to a thin tip at the bottom. The vase is supported by three evenly spaced cylinders supporting the units above...

Currently we've in the process of recreating this design to be remade out of metal, or a metal finish, material...
