I’ve been so caught up these days with production work (for some really really cool peeps) and Merritt Ceramics (a place filled with really really cool peeps) I haven’t had time to finish this overly large decorative urn. I WILL finish this beautiful green monster tho before the new year, just you wait and see!
This building in Ballarat definitely has an anarchic look........😉
As we countdown excitedly toward the opening of our new exhibition gallery, we are continuously amazed by the many dynamic processes involved in its development.
Still underway, the reproduction of the 20 sculpted figures that adorn the exterior of the Anzac Memorial building is definitely one such process!
Captured by @_studiokite, the 3D printing of our ‘Air Mechanic’ buttress figure exposes so poetically the similarities and differences between the two sculptures and their manufacturing processes. .
Originally created in Darlinghurst in 1932 in artist Raynor Hoff’s studio at the East Technical College, the final sculptures were cast in granite so that they may appear to be flowering from the buttresses of the building.
By contrast, the new sculptures are reproduced using ultra-modern printing and rendering technologies, and will be on open display in our new gallery.
