CATTLEYA EXOTICA ‘Amethyst’
CATTLEYA EXOTICA ‘Amethyst’ – one of a collection of 6 Wall mounted Exotic Orchids lit with a neon center. Weight 6kilos (includes white mounting board)
Several years in design and development, the Orchis Exotica sculptures are the result of a union between 3D virtual sculpting, CAD (Computer Aided Design) and traditional glass making techniques. With tolerances of only 3mm between the petal layers, the advantages of 3D design technology and rapid prototyping come into their own. The sculptures begin life as virtual models, from which individual petals and the supporting ‘cradle’ are 3D printed in durable resin. The most complex lip petal shapes are reverse-engineered in pliable silicone in order that they can be safely removed from final plaster moulds.
The bicoloured neon centres, created by Steve Archer, represent the flower’s reproductive organs and are themselves representative of a rare skill.
