A cellular ring in polished brass. Undistorted cells gradually expand as they cycle around the ring. The design was inspired by the complex forms of radiolarians, tiny sea creatures whose intricate skeletons use pattern to create structure.
This ring is made using a multistage production process that marries 3D printing technology with traditional lost wax casting. First, the ring is 3D printed in wax using a high-resolution printer. The wax model is then encased in liquid plaster. After the plaster has set, the wax is melted out of the plaster form and molten brass is poured in. Once the metal has cooled, the plaster form is broken away to reveal the ring, which is then carefully hand-polished to a high shine.
