Tamela Sicay-Perrow Project 1 CNC Mill

I have completed the first step in Project 1, a 3d model from which a block of yellow polyurethane foam will be milled out and later molded. Thematically, these are an abstraction of a fruit or melon. Poured casts will be grouped together, and arranged for the final piece. This mould can also be combined to create fully round melon type objects, or partials.
The models were created by manipulating control-points or CV's in Rhino, from perfect spheres to shapes with symmetrically spaced ridges.

More postings will follow updating on process and progression into the final piece, as this perfectly symmetrical milled object is but the means to an end.
