Quave Inman – Molds For Slumping Glass
Quave brought a photo of a previous glass piece to the Fab Lab at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. We extracted a heightfield from the photo using Rhino and then exported it as a .stl file. We then open the .stl file in PartWorks3D and created a toolpath. The resulting two molds were milled out of insulation foam and wood. The foam mold was then recast in plaster silica so Quave could cast glass in it. Work in progress.
