Lasercut in Calico

Same design as the plywood before but in Calico. Only now do I see how flimsy the pattern is - just taking it off the lasercutter made parts of it snap. the most obvious application for for this in my opinion is lighting.

Garland, Lights, Studio Tord Boontje

I have heard Tord Boontje's name bounced around the studio from time to time, but it wasn't untill I looked him up that I dicovered my lasercut holds such resemblance to a piece of his, made for Habitat in 2002. This 'Garland Light' is a long metal arrangement of flowers that can be wrapped around any lightbulb. I remember admiring this piece in a schoolfreind's kitchen when I was around 15, so it was a delight to stumble upon it on his homepage.

Found Object

I handed my work in today!! I took my work with me to the pub and bound my sketchbook back at home. Think it's now time for an afternoon nap.

Screen Printing

Lazercut images taken to screen print. At first, all my prints onto calico were blotchy, and it took me ages to realise what I was doing wrong. I ran over the screen too many times with the squeegee thinking that I would be scraping away excess ink, where in actual fact I was only pushing more ink through, making the image bleed. I also discovered that puff binder makes my inks streaky, and looks like bread mould.
