Projects as they develop
Right now I'm working on 'The Golden Boy'. This is a departure for me, it is a family saga over three generations. The book blurb at the back will read something like:
"2020, 80-year-old Elizabeth Chandler is dying of COVID-19 and reflecting on a life which had included two lovers and three husbands. As her light fades, and her husband of just a few months holds her hand, she makes one final attempt to heal a rift that began when she gave birth to The Golden Boy."
I have been experimenting with the use of AI. The tile below began as a prompt to an AI. I like the idea that I made a physical object from the "mind" of an AI.
I'm also working on the AI-generated picture of David Bowie, to see if I can turn it into a tile.
Otherwise, I'm working on a larger Czech Vase and a larger Melon vase, see links, both using my new Creality K1 - Max 3D printer, which I love. Once those are ok I'd like to develop a Moon vase, but emboss AI-generated patterns onto the surface. I like the idea of the mix of old and new.
Oh. I'm also trying to recreate very old (2000 years old plus) pieces by downloading open-source 3D models and trying to make moulds from those.
