WHAT'S NEW IN 3D PRINTING: "A RAINBOW OF COLORS COMES TO 3D PRINTING FILAMENT"
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's latest post shares big news - 3D-printing filament is now available in colors formerly limited to powder coat .... Check it out.
And don't miss his recent video about his 3D-printing philosophy - it might surprise you!
NEW IN THE STUDIO
While Kevin awaited the return of Schubertii with its new finish, he's started on 2 other commissions, both water sculptures. "It's interesting how both of these water features are headed to states bordered by water," Kevin observes. The first water sculpture finally has its title: Gyro. It's headed to a historic home in California that was owned by entrepreneur and inventor Robert McCulloch, who created a hybrid helicopter plane called the Gyrocopter. See Gyro on its own page.
The second as-yet-untitled water feature, which is headed to Florida, is another in his dish series. He has the first six dishes on it - there's 1 more to go. Watch it develop on its own page.
Schubertii (right, partial), the sculpture Kevin has been working on for several months, is just back from the powder coater. This 10-foot-tall sculpture, inspired by and titled after the plant of the same name, will have spinning flowers atop it. Like the flowers, the ball will spin, so there is some engineering to do as well as general fabrication. After powder coating, some assembly will also be required before shipping the piece to New York. See Schubertii grow on its own page.
Kevin also has been creating another kinetic sculpture that does not yet have a title. It will be a spinner with the frame on the outside, much like his sound sculpture Nucleus. He has finally gotten the three sections of the stand together and is working on the spinner. "I've been trying different forms for the spinner," Kevin says, "and I think I now know what I want to do." His spinners are wind activated, although a push by hand will work, too. See its progress thus far for yourself.
Kevin's made some progress on the spinner before he started on the 2 new water sculpture commissions. "I like have a couple of sculptures under way at a time," he says.
Kevin's other recent sculpture that grew simply out of his very active imagination, High Simmer, made its debut at the inaugural Sculpture Tucson art show. It is slated to be featured in Phoenix Home & Garden magazine this September. Meanwhile, see the official photo of this striking sculpture on its own page.
In his 3D-printing practice, Kevin recently finished the luminous sculpture Spectre, which will debut this summer at the Five15 Arts' Seventh Annual Five15 to the Fifth art show. "This piece printed flawlessly and easily," says Kevin. "That's not always true, so this was a pleasure." See more photos of Spectre on its own page.
