Artists continue to exploit 3D technology. This week we encountered a report from Digital Collisions that spoke of New York based designer Joshua Davis, who recently used 3D tech to produce stunning vases, including the one pictured above.
Davis evidently used Maya to produce the 3D model, which was then printed. The vase itself was not printed, but instead it was used as a guide to create a mould for the remaining conventional vase making process.
Interestingly, Davis also used technology to produce the patterns imprinted on the vases with a special algorithm that apparently warped image portions input from a 1908 book on Floral Mechanics.
