Exploring general shape and form of the object.2//
Narrowed down on the shape I wanted to focus on and then I explored ways to integrate my tow materials (Wood and plaster) into the shape. For the interior space containing the ball bearing, I wanted to incorporate some steps going diagonally across the form. This will hopefully produce an interesting rhythm and sound when the object is tilted. 3//
Zeroing in on the exact shape of my object. I decided to not use the idea of 'steps' because it created more problems in terms of physically creating it. So I simplified everything and instead put more focus on the connection and pattern. The interior space is changed into a curve going across the form which will be reflected visually on the surfece of the object through the transition in materials. 4//
Figuring out how to create the space to fit the ball bearing in the casting process.
