With his roots in traditional jewelry making, Joshua DeMonte is now in the spotlight because of using 3D printing for his artwork. Thanks to an obligated computer class he was introduced to CAD and subsequently to 3D printing. He started out creating buildings. To combine this with his knowledge of jewelry making he came up with the ‘obvious’ idea to just poke a hole in the buildings and voila, you got your bracelet.
40 Under 40 Craft Futures
You can currently view his artwork at the Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C. There is an art exhibition running until the 2nd of February called ’40 Under 40 Craft Futures’. This show features forty artists who were born since 1972, which is the year the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s contemporary craft and decorative arts program was established at the Renwick branch.
Joshua was highlighted in this video of the Smithsonian Channel called “40 Under 40 : The Art of 3D Printing” because of his remarkable 3D printed art.
