David is an artist and a painter but wanted to explore sculpting in one of the hardest materials to work with: glass. Through the layered profiles of stained glass the Phoenix emits a vibrant array of colors when exposed to light. Each glass sheet has a unique, intricate design that would be nearly impossible to cut by hand but was easily cut with WAZER.
David designed the Pheonix directly with an X-ACTO knife and paper. He took photos of the paper cuts and the team converted them to .DXF files in Photoshop. The entire project took 34 minutes to cut on WAZER and used 11 pounds (5kg) of abrasive.
