Digital Design

Pattern designs for sculptures are first drawn digitally.

Laser Cutting

The designs are then cut on a laser cutter. Some of the cuts are kept as-is, while others are used for molds.

Moldmaking

The cut designs are layered and cast in polyurithan rubber.

CASTING

From the rubber mold, a copy of the design can be produced in wax. The wax is them invested and cast in either glass or metal.
