Bronze Heron was 3D modeled solely using de Gheyn’s image as a reference. 2D scans of real feathers were used to generate the textures and produce a print from a Polyamida 3D printer. This print was then moulded and cast using a lost wax process. Bronze Heron was silver-plated and finished by hand.
