ABOUT ACROPORA FLOWER
Acropora flower concept is based on a Coral branching structure in nature. We have been studying and experimenting the growth of coral in nature and tried to implement it in our design. We looked at density, thickness and quality of material over the time. This collection is result of over hundreds of printing and casting to find out the right density and thickness. We always inspired from nature and natural phenomena.
We have two design series within this collection; Acropora Flower and Acropora Extend. Both of these design series show the growth concept in nature. One of them is growing freely without limitation which is Acropora Flower and another one is growth without touching or crossing the branches which is Acropora Extend.
This is the Acropora flower progress design. every branch is growing at variable rates, density and thickens into complex configurations which mimic the natural forms of Acorpora corals. Through this generative jewelry design process, we are trying to compare branch density vs branch thickness and find out more about the 3D printer limits. Also , through this process we will found which one is better candidate for polishing.
