Every week, Carson runs “Vessel Wednesday” on her blog, Needles Edge. I’ll have to put quite a spin on my post to make it qualify, but it’s worth a bash, so here goes…
This is some lasercutting I had done last week, and in the background, you see the glorious mountain view we have from our balcony.
The area we live in is cupped by Devil’s Peak, Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, and is known as “The City Bowl”. It’s a kind of vessel, right? Just a reeeally big one.
Good to see your keeping up the blog Heather. How do cut the glass is it holding the laser or holding the glass?
Hello Mr Gent. Glad to have you back – you were my first comment ever, I think!
It’s just a flimsy piece of paper that has been lasercut. I’m holding it up with one hand (out of sight) while photographing it with the other. It’s just a prototype for something I’m working on at the mo’.
I love your spin on vessel..very lateral
And what amazing landscape you’ve got there!
About the lasercutting..I was very pleased when my regular lasercutters told me they could do thin cardboard! Up to then it had been styrene only.
What did we do before lasercutting?
Glad you like it!
Through my husband’s artwork processes, I know a whole heap of lasercutters, waterjet cutters and routers who all specialise in different applications and materials. i’m terribly keen to get some metal cut sometime soon…
Hah, that could just as well be a postcard propped in the background – gorgeous view. We don’t have anything like that in Melbourne!
As for laser cutting, this is something i’d just love to get into and envy you for your connections! The places I’ve found around here tend not to pay you much attention or return calls/emails unless you’re big business or know the right people. Looks like a heap of fun though.
