My First 3D Design Class
As a freshman at SCAD we are all obliged to take a mandatory class – called 3D Design. Martha Whittington was my professor. Starting out the class I was very uncertain of what we would be taught, but as the class progressed I became very intrigued and comfortable with the syllabus and all the materials we were trained and allowed to use.
In this class I designed a ceiling suspended wall lamp mounted in a wooden frame, this is a lamp suspended from the ceiling, which shone facing the wall. The lamp was the ultimate mix between an ambient day-light and a stunning night-light. My lamp consisted of two fluorescent light bulbs. Since I wanted to create an ambient glow of a tranquil red-pink color, I applied thin layers of paint to the exterior of one of the bulbs. Now the other white fluorescent bulb, I replaced with a UV light, and when combined with the other light it created an astonishing yet subtle beauty. I wish you could see it. This project was something I was and is still greatly pleased with.
At the end of my 10-week course I attained a new love for 3D Design (Sculpture, Wood work, Metal work et.al.) After that great experience I decided to pursue Furniture Design as my second major.
