These objects are part of a series of objects, some as wearable jewellery some as tableware, that have their origin in mathematics.
Starting from 'minimal surfaces', complex equations have been altered to explore their aesthetic properties. Once satisfied with their 'form' CAD tools helped to translate these surfaces to solid forms.
These forms were then build using 'fused deposition manufacturing (FDM)' rapid prototyping processes. This FDM process generates a somewhat rough machine surface that is highly intriguing pattern.
