"I design my work through rendering delicate and repetitive lines on intricate contours. I refine my design drafts through orthographic drawings. The hand-drawing process assists me in modeling three-dimensional objects using Rhinoceros, a 3D modeling software that can build up volumetric forms through assigned points, lines, and surfaces.
My work communicates the juxtaposition of 3D printed components and enameled components. I fabricate the enameled objects through the process of preparing and finely finishing all metal parts, sifting vitreous enamel of various colors onto the metal surface, firing multiple layers of vitreous enamel in the kiln until achieving expected surface texture, and patinating the exposed metal edges with liver of sulfur. The completed enameled components are combined with the 3D printed components through sewing, tension fitting, riveting, or applying creatively designed mechanisms."
