I saw a documentary on drone bees and was fascinated by their tragic lives so decided to sculpt a dedication to these unsung apian heroes. Carpe Diem, friends, for autumn approaches. I used 3D Coat and had it printed in brass via Shapeways.
San Francisco Garter Snake
The San Francisco Garter Snake is a very cool and colorful endangered species surviving in the nooks and crannies of San Mateo County. I made this svg/vector art in Inkscape. And yes, it really is colored neon blue and red:
Sculpted in ZBrush and printed by Shapeways in detailed plastic
3d printed in steel
A coaster inspired by the Piazza Campidoglio in Rome. This project started out as an Inkscape SVG, then extruded in OpenSCAD and finally 3d printed.
My goal here was to sculpt a full body classical sculpture in the manner of Baroque greats like Bernini. I fell way short of the Old Masters but learned a lot about anatomy. Once I had the figure roughed in, I embellished it with the trident to create a young Neptune (Poseidon) character.
I love figs so I sculpted a fig split in half and had it printed in brass. This piece has been sold.
A pen and ink wash landscape I did, based on a photo I took from the roof the duomo in Milan.
Here I imagined that, in the future, we will use bio-tech to create supersized versions of plants and animals as temporary public sculpture, such as this orchid on San Francisco’s waterfront.
