Lyn 'Lynno' Wallis
I am a 3D printing artist and object maker, living and working in regional Victoria. I was an early adopter of domestic 3D printing (I got the first domestic model released in 2012), and soon became obsessed with both the machines themselves, and the creative frenzy they inspire.
I have established a 3D printing micro-farm on my property in regional Victoria, Australia, and I design each object from the ground up using CAD tools such as MOI 3D ( a NURBS-based program) and SketchUp, and am beginning to incorporate virtual clay modelling for 3D printing. I experiment with sustainable printable materials, and manipulate machine settings expertly to create unique effects.
I am committed to making sustainably. My vases are 3D printed using high quality degradable and biodegradable PLA (polylactic acid). PLA is a bioplastic produced from renewable materials (like corn starch), and is commercially compostable.
Vases are printed on-demand to avoid wastage, and designed and printed in a home studio powered by solar energy. Water used for water-testing the vases is recycled into my beautiful garden.
