Executed with modern technologies, "Rosie" is a contemporary interpretation of a classical theme.
This has been made by laser cutting a sheet of mdf 3mm thick into 103 parts and then gluing them back together. Even though the "pancake" effects makes for an irregular surface, the amount of details that can be suggested is still amazing.

The laser leaves a dark burn mark on the side on the ply. As a result the sculptures appears dark or clear depending on the viewing angle, producing fascinating highlights.

This is solid, robust and durable. weight: 6kg (13 pounds)

A edition of 10 a sold out.

A second open edition in Kauri Plywood is being offered. Slightly larger than this model. It can be ordered at 3 weeks notice.
Free shipping worldwide.

Serial plane forms are becoming more regular with the introduction of new technologies even though they have existed for several decade. To see a classical reference, though not entirely original, is always a pleasure for many of use who have pursued such studies.
