Another project involving bud vases but this time it’s objects made for a gift shop. I’m still wondering whether using hardwoods would give the dishes more longevity but we’ll get back to that at a later stage. Funny where designing and making things takes you!
Another interesting design project which I loved transforming from drawings to actual objects. The pamphlet holder was the difficult one, one has to consider the size, weight and angle at which they will sit.
The triangular shapes were designed to both point to the card information as well as to visually interact with the rectangular shapes of cards. I was trying to move away from the standard holders and I think I’ve succeeded. This project was made for the Sol Space Pilates and Movement studio in Adelaide.
Had these stools hanging around the studio for months before this project, it’s always a good feeling when an object gains a new life. The funny thing is that the final design turned out to be the simplest idea but came about last during the brainstorming process.
Here was a fun little project which allowed me to use a new gadget, and I love those! Especially when they actually work haha. I wanted to use dowel joins only in this quite minimal piece as I like the finish better than caps or putty. I’m aiming to use this technique as much as possible in the future. The orange oil finish made the piece blend in with the floor boards which was unexpected but the customer is happy 😊
Some sketches for possible sculptures, murals, fabrics etc. Less to do with techniques such as shading or perspective and more to do with visual iconography, at times a tribute to Egyptian hieroglyphics. A lot of fun to do 😃
