Andrew Martin Critique

IMGP3520-1This past week Andrew Martin was a visiting artist at our studio and I had the opportunity to have a short critique with him. He gave me a lot of great pointers and fortunately I was able to show him my most recent laser cutting piece. On a technical side note, this piece is acting as a prototype for construction and some more testing but I etched the lines lighter in this piece with Power 75, Speed 75.

Critique Notes:
-Use diamond grit sandpaper to polish the edges and soften the gritty sound
-Try bevelling the edges, like a tortoise shell effect
-To prevent awkward shrinkage, design in my cut space & overlaps by offsetting thin lines in Rhino
-Design in the jump ring holes
-Try layering the grey slip between the white to get crisper lines
-Words to keep in mind: precision, exquisite, fine details

I also got the opportunity to talk to one of our alumni Hannah Thompsett about my work and she suggested that I make my own chain. I was thankful that she mentioned it, because that was one of those fine details I almost forgot.
