KEVIN TO SPEAK AT CODAWORX ART, TECHNOLOGY & PLACE SUMMIT
Kevin will share his adventures with 3D printing large-format sculpture at he CODAworx Art, Technology & Place Summit this fall. "Other sculptors use 3D printing," says Kevin, "but few if any others print sculptures as large as the ones I've been printing."
A pioneer in using 3D printing for sculpture, Kevin had his 8-foot-tall 3D printer made for him. He has worked through challenges with hardware, software and material to create 3D-printed sculpture as large as 5-1/2 feet tall. "I'm excited about sharing what I've learned creating these sculptures, including a new approach that I'm very excited about."
The summit will be held in El Paso, Texas, October 2 - 4. Stay tuned for more information.
WHAT'S NEW IN 3D PRINTING: "BREAKTHROUGH: ‘PLAYING AROUND’ LEADS TO INTRIGUING VISUAL DEVELOPMENT"
What does 3D printing have to do with art? Kevin shares his adventures with this new technology in his blog, "A Sculptor Takes on 3D Printing."
Kevin shares how he arrived at a really exciting new look with his 3D-printed sculptures in his latest 3D blog post. "While some people say Malcolm Gladwell's theory about 10,000 hours isn't true, I find that the more time I spend with something, the more I learn," says Kevin. Check it out.
NEW IN THE STUDIO
Kevin has nearly completed the second branch (below, left) for a new commission for a sculpture and horticultural garden in New York titled Weeping Tree.
He has also completed prepping and shaping the flower petals, which are now at the painter. "I am really excited about how these are going to look," says Kevin. "It involves something totally new for me - this seems to be a recurring theme in my career!" See 4 of the flowers mounted on branches on Weeping Tree's own Webpage.
This sculpture will take many months to complete - watch it develop on its own page.
While his time in his metal studio has been dominated by Weeping Tree, Kevin has also been busy with 3D printing.
A hunch and playing around with settings has led him to an exciting discovery, one he details in his latest 3D-printing blog post. "I am crazy excited about this, and everyone else seems to be, too," says Kevin. "While I will continue to refine the results, this detailed, layered, deconstructed look takes my work to a new level."
The official photo of Looking In (above, right) gives you a full view, albeit a small one, of beautiful this new approach is. People have said it looks like ice, glass, a fish skeleton, quartz and even jellyfish. See a large image of the entire sculpture Looking In on its own Webpage.
So far Kevin has created 3 sculptures using this technique. One other, the equally entrancing Inside Out, is 3D printed in natural PLA filament, which looks translucent. The first in the series and style Rainbow He, in a silky rainbow filament. Rainbow He has already sold.
Kevin also is working on a more typical (for him) sound sculpture with a stand and a bell, but that may, too, have a bit of a twist. "It's just the way I think," says Kevin.

NEW IN VIDEO: "HOW TO HAVE A POCKETFUL OF TOOLS - USING A LEVEL"
When Kevin needed a short level to check a drawer, he realized he had one - and a lot of other tools, too - in his pocket. You probably do, too! Check it out!.
