Zodiac Horse Ring Jewelry by Desmond Chan - Cacus Jewelry

Home > Winners > #83138


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Zodiac Horse Ring

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Jewelry

INSPIRATION:
Zodiac Horse Ring was inspired by Alexander Calder. He was a modern American artist who is best known for his innovative mobiles, kinetic and wire sculptures that embrace chance in their aesthetic and his monumental public sculptures. Calder’s wire art is three-dimensional, using the unorthodox medium of wire, which he shaped into remarkably vivid and figure-like objects of considerable character and nuance.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Zodiac Horse Ring is structurally interconnected with a complex wire network of different thickness that provides the ring with a resilient surface tension and overall strength of structure. Desmond created a stylized horse leaving many negative spaces to explore the delicate balanced tension between positive and negative space.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It’s able to produce the complex Zodiac Horse design and more size variations by using the 3D printing method than traditional handmade method. In the current market of 3D printers, the quality and level of detail is high enough. The variation between the physical and digital versions is nearly imperceptible to the human eye. The speed and accessibility of a desktop printer allows us to quickly create prototypes and final wax mold in one to two hours, allowing me to produce personalized jewelry in competitive price. Compared to traditional handmade method, jeweler needs to spend several days to finish a hand carved wax. Another big advantage is that 3D files can be easily edited. A 3D model can be printed as a plastic prototype first to check if the quality and design are correct. Changes can simply be made in the 3D modeling software.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Zodiac Horse Ring finished on November 2016 in Hong Kong

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The process begins with concept design. And then convert the design into 3D modeling by using 3D software. A technician edits the digital file into a 3D printable mold, and sends it to a jewelry 3D printer. Once printed, the wax is used to make a high quality mold by outsourcing provider. They cast sterling silver into the mold and give the ring a polish to the highest degree of smoothness black rhodium plating.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions: 20.93 x 40.78 x 36.60 mm
