Fresh from the printer , this new bird model [who's counter part can be seen in previous posts] has been "deformed" in Cinema 4D, a three dimensional modeling program. I have twisted this version for a fresh and lively look. Its eight inches tall
The image above are the original models, on top are the porcelain versions with more movement.

My first experience doing taxidermy was with this bat specimen, I acquired during my residency at Pope Valley Pottery, on the edge of Napa Valley, California. Here at the Ohio State University, Im working with Steven Thurston, researching the capabilities of 3-D scanning and rapid prototypes. Ultimately, Im converting the products of these new technologies into ceramics. The model shown above was printed with a zcorp 3-d printer. Myself ,nor the technology is perfect and I have lost a wing in the process, but the results are still very interesting.
