Wall Vessels, 3D object from 2D sheeting


Wall Vessels are a new series of objects formed by combining digital and manual processes. These objects are both utilitarian and decorative and are more then 600mm long and about 450mm wide. Please find more images on my web site here.


I design the CNC engraving patterns and save them as digital files, these in turn control the CNC router’s path. The machine cut pattern then guides the manual deformation of the sheet into a 3d object. Using composite aluminium panel, this high performing material is lightweight, durable and colourfast, making it suitable for creating lasting individually designed works. Aluminum Composite Panel is best described as a sandwich panel consisting of a Polyethylene core sandwiched between two aluminum sheets with the entire panel consisting of three layers.

I am interested in experimenting with the surface treatment, as the appearance will translate this material from industrial back to the manually formed and finished object.

A paper folded ‘sketch’ object serves as a mock-up. The creases in the paper are translated into a digital vector drawing in Illustrator and saved as .eps file. This file is then used for the CNC router.
