Anne is an established contemporary jeweller and lecturer at Belfast School of Art. She labelled herself a technological illiterate who has bought into Anarkik3D Design.
She purchased her kit in January 2018, having participated in the Craft Council UK’s national Make:Shift:Do event Anarkik3D held for designer makers to try haptic 3D modelling.
The black piece is from Anne’s batch pods, 3D printed in polyamide, dyed black.
She has set moonstones in the pod, with pigmented polyurethane and carved ebony as the recessed disc, with yellow silk and silicon sheath.
‘Using Anarkik3D Design has added a different layer of drawing and making to my practice. It proved to be a very direct and instinctive programme that was as close to my paper-based drawing process as computer drawing could allow. The speed with which I was able to engage with its haptic nature allowed an unexpected ‘flow’ of ideas that came surprisingly close to experimental studio work. I can now say that Anarkik3D Design is established as part of my practice!’ (AEB, March 2019)
