2018 - Microscopic pollen is all around us but we can’t see it with our bare eyes. Looking through a microscope you soon find out that pollens are geometrical wonders and are nothing short of a sculpture. By using a combination of generating and modeling based on the platonic solids, I was able to create forms that shared visual similarities with pollen. These series of lampshades are created using the latest 3D printing technology and manual hand work. Astera is a breathtaking pendant light made of a smooth bone white resin.The beautiful triangular algorithmic structure closely resembles textures found in microscopic pollen. Each pendant is hand crafted via a special casting method where by we use a unique mix of synthetic resin to create the aesthetically pleasing smooth finish.
