Desert Cast merges CAD design, foam cutting technology and sand-casting in unprecedented applications. The first Desert Cast collection, Series XLVI, combined the process of single-directional foam-extrusion with lost-foam-casting, a process that allows
the casting of undercut objects, which is not usually possible in traditional sand- casting. Towards An Identity uses advanced two directional foam cutting to create forms that appear to be shaped in all axes. The pieces are partially copper-dipped to further
exaggerate the contrast between the modern aesthetics and traditional casting. The collection shows the extensive potential of localised application of technology and ancient craft.
