Project Description

Szolyd was asked to create a sculptural piece to be hung in a private garden. The idea for the artistic creation came from the clients ring that was a treasured family heirloom. The ring was imaged with a 3d scanner and digitized in order to manipulate the file and prepare it for milling. A foam positive was milled, and then coated with a hard shell material and sanded smooth. Next brush on rubber was applied to the surface in layers to create the first layer of the mold. The final mold stage was creating a plaster of paris backer which acted as the mother mold.

From 3d scan to finished sculpture
