Patterned Dish Forms at QMC: Design Scott Klinker


Today at QMC we produced the research we started planning in August! (Thank you Michael! Thank you Ron!) The technique here combines 2D graphic cut-outs with 3D stamping. I created a series of classic 2D architectural patterns that were laser cut into flat steel blanks – some cold rolled, some stainless. We then stamped these patterns in a simple dish form, but began combining various patterns and blank shapes to explore what kind of layering may result in the mold. The process was similar to my stamping experiments in the Metals studio.  The results are very interesting, with a variety of geometries and lace textures coming from a simple set of starting variables. The technique here is purely sketchy and experimental, with rough edges everywhere. The potential for new product languages using these technologies is extremely exciting! Steel, Pattern, Texture, Surface, Structure….Craft.
