Janelle Wheelock: Digital Kiln Formed Glass

Once again we break new ground in our digital applications for sculpture. I thought I would share these images of Janelle's work after they completed their second slumping operation. During the first cycle we didn't take the kiln up high enough. The pieces did not slump completely. The second attempt was a lot more successful. The glass pieces slumped over the ludo molds perfectly. In this process she went from a computer model to a CNC milled wooden form that was then molded using Brush-On 40 urethane mold materials. The ludo was then cast into these molds. Now that is a Digital Application for Sculpture. I will let her talk more about it in her postings.
