First 3D prints

Building blocks, each 5x5x5cm

These are some of my first 3D prints. They are maquettes for a larger piece I’m considering making. If I go ahead with what would be a pretty ambitious work, each of these pieces will be cast in something like concrete or weatherproof plaster and would be around 10x10x10cm. This is intended as a sculptural work which can be rearranged by the viewer. I will include a “planter” which will probably be 20x20x20cm, intended to be planted with fine grass.

I plan to 3D print the moulds for each piece. I’ll use some flexible filament so each casting can be removed from the mould.
