This summer, one of our awesome interns, Amy, was selected for an art fellowship called “The Windgate Fellowship funded by the Center for Craft, Creativity, and Design”.
She had the opportunity to spend 10 days in Alaska getting 3D scans of glaciers and icebergs. The trip involved hiking out on glaciers and kayaking around them using a camera to take multiple pictures surrounding the icebergs or glacier. This is a process called Photogrammetry. She then uploaded the photos into a program called Autodesk Remake, which stitches the images together into a 3D form. One she was able to generate a 3D model, she edited the files to be printed on a Form2 printer in wax. She then attended a 2 week workshop in Corning, NY at the Corning Museum of Glass with artist Richard Whitely. She was able to create a cast glass piece there by taking a mold off a 3D print.
