In these I have started work on the texture of the walls. I drew it all from scratch. The tiling still needs a little work and I would like to sort out the regularity of the repeat.

adding more detail into the geometry

This is very much work in progress and I haven’t really tweaked the lighting.

I am just building the geometry and have added some more detail around the battlements. I have also added the ramp and the beginnings of the drawbridge

This was experimental design for a display cabinet.

I seem to have gone a bit overboard with the reflections and the size of the wall texture.

Standing Lamp

A standing Lamp

Oddly Wonderful Lamp – OWL

One of the final year pieces for my degree course. The idea behind the lamp is the adjustability of the paper shade. By adjusting the weight in the middle the shade moves in and out making it flatter or more 3 dimensional. This also adjusts the amount of light that is emitted.

Height adjustable workstation

This is one of the final year projects for my degree course. The idea was a Computer workstation at which one could work standing up and sitting down and switch between the two easily.  So lifting the keyboard desk automatically adjusts the tilt of the screen to suit.
