Finding a gorgeous piece of stained glass that I needed to have, resulted in a holiday ornament gift.
I had to create an arbitrary constraint for the project because… well you know every personal project needs them, even when things are intended to be creative art pieces. So i decided to make a 3D design that would make the most of the piece of glass I had so as to minimize the scrap of the beautiful material. I believe there is a formal name for patterns that are cut where there is no waste (ie. inner or outer material that winds up being scrap), but i forget… anyone?
Anyways see a few shots of the making of the ornament gift:
