Laser Cut Burnouts

I doubt that these will survive the firing process, but I love how the weight of the clay slip distorts the shapes even further than paper alone. the slip is so lovely to work with I just want to swim in it...or eat it.

Water Jet Cutting Part 2

I did it!!!! I expected my ham-fisted score lines to snap but it survived!!!! I need some opinions on finishes. I could let it rust and have it lacquered, or spray it in a bold colour. I'm thinking red for some reason, anything but white as it nearly looks like a snowflake already. What I have decided on is that it needs to be matt, and that it will become a table lamp.......somehow.....

On the Water Jet Cutter!!!!!

So hopefully I will be able to turn this piece of mild steel....

Into this.
God knows how I'll manage the folding part but it will be fun trying. Hopefully if everything goes according to plan I will have the other section cut out and then it'll be finished by the end of the week. Then I can work out scale and finishes, or even better I can can add extra attachments to make a light fitting!! So Exciting!!!!!!!
