I didn’t notice the bottom outline until I hit ‘export.’ But, here it is…

Wow, after getting the materials, Ponoko really does move fast. Sweet!

Project 3

I have no effing clue what to do for our 3rd project- welding stuff.

I’d like to do something with a repeating pattern, I think, but Megan Auman took all the good designs! And how should I make mine unique if I -do- do a textile pattern; its not like I could do a pillow.

Back to the drawing board.

Pendant progress

To maximize my test-run ability, I’ll be able to get double the pieces I’ll need from Ponoko, plus a little something extra for non-school stuff. Unless filling the whole template is crazy expensive- but I’m hoping buying this size template will allow me to not waste too much.

My materials will be copper, bordeaux felt, and brass attachments.

Reflection time

The greatest lesson learned in completing my first metals project is how much time it takes to come to a finished piece. (And, yes, thinner metal is better.) It took me a while to land on what shape I wanted to use. My sketchbook has lots of doodles and drawings trying to come up with my design. My model construction was frustrating at first, but once I figured out how to do the cone shape, I was on a better track. My measurements could have been better- the candle I bought for the piece won’t fit under it unless I cut it down.

I made this a daunting project and I’m glad that it’s over. I think I have a better grasp on my limitations with this new medium. My pendant sketches and models are flowing much more smoothly, although my brother told me he sees a face in the design and now that’s all I see. (There is no face though!) 🙂

The third project looks intimidating, but the sample photos on Flickr are amazing. We’ll see what happens.
