A little bit about how it's made
Beth feels that the preservation of traditional skills is imperative, this must however, be counterbalanced by the use of the contemporary and progressive. 3D technology needs to find its place, as these skills are becoming increasingly valuable and relied upon within a digitally focused society. Within her process of creating Beth translates the notion of the physical and digital through a large array of techniques both old and new.
The inclusion of modern 3D technology creates an air of mystery, intrigue and fantasy as until a design takes a physical form true potential cannot be realised.
The making of prototypes is a key design stage, it is through these prototypes subtle changes can be made to the finished piece and issues sorted before the arise in the final material. The use of 3D printing allows quick, inexpensive, realistic prototypes to be fashioned. This is then combined with traditional, time intensive trials, evaluating material behavior and developing techniques.
