We are back from a month long break. Great tutorial last Thursday. Students are developping their temples which range from a temple to infinity all the way to aa temple for bees. Here are couple pictures of the work. Beautiful!

  1. Very nice work! for “William Garforth Bless’ ceramics tests for his temple for Water” What did you used to model?
    thanks

  2. Hi Michela,

    The ceramic tiles are created by pressing the 3D SLS print (shown in the photo, just below the render) into clay. I then fired them in a kiln and used a flat blue glazing in the process.

    The 3D print was created using 3DS Max. I used ‘Garment maker’ and a cellular displacement to create the deformation. I then placed this form onto a hanging cloth model to create a tensional shell. I am hoping to make a 1:25 out of carbon fibre this weekend!

    Best

    Will
