Seven Lions

Made by sweishae

My goal was to design a clock that both captures something I very much care about, music – specifically, in this case a DJ that goes by Seven Lions – whilst making something unique. A lot of clocks have a circular body, which is why I decided I wanted to laser cut a clock body in the shape of his logo, a lions head. The 'Seven Lions' is an inlay, which let me utilize multiple features that were available with this specific iDeATe tool.

Process + Procedure

Canvas, Sketch, Extrude, Plan Laser cut, Laser cut into three colors of acrylic for inlays, combine using acrylic glue.

I used inlays to my advantage and create a multiple layer clock that consists of three colors of acrylic.

Shoutout to Alan for his project in mini 1. It laid out the foundation for the direction in which I wanted to take my project.
