Ana Belchí - The Golden Ratio
Learn how to construct this architectural piece based on The Golden Ratio proportions. Don’t panic, although it seems terribly complicated, you will see how to construct it easily. We are going to work with the extruder to make the sinuous surface. Sand and buff before cut the piece. We are going to use the heat from the oven to cut the piece while is hot so we can cut easily and precise. We we’ll assembly all the piece using a wire structure to have a very hard piece. We are also going to work with wire to make the brass frame. And for the veneer we’ll work with really tiny pieces of polymer clay to get the soft lines.
