The last two posts described the process I used to create models through 3 D scanning and 3 D printing. Molds were made from these models and porcelain slip cast for the objects. The porcelain pieces were made in Hungary this past summer with Herend porcelain. I shipped the work home where I applied and fired luster and decals. I wanted them to be both contained in a box and also displayed with the box and corresponding collage. The collage is actually a collaboration with my father, long deceased but with the use of a flat bed scanner, I took some of his drawings scanned and printed them on archival paper. I layered other images, leaves and hearts, both ambiguous and similar forms, to complete the collages. The boxes are made of museum board, cut and scored on a laser cutter.
