RubberPlants

2007

A technical exercise in precision moulding. These plants are exact copies of the organic originals. After vacuum casting my Rubber Chair I was obsessed with the technique and wanted to find the ultimate challenge. I found that making absolute perfect copies of these plants was an excellent test. The plants were molded in a vacuum and burned in an oven. All the organic plant material vaporized and the cavity was vacuum filled with polyurethane rubber. After 48 failed attempts number 49 came out as a perfect rubber clone of its organic twin.
