Fire basket

Background:

Inspired by flickering flames through the woods, the Fire basket creates a ever changing graphic.

I designed the fire basket as a present for my fathers birthday.
I made the design in Solidworks 3D CAD, exporting the various graphics for water jet cutting.

Result:

The Fire basket is made out of 2mm steel cut into shape using water jet cutting.
Water jet cutting proved to be a powerful, versatile technology to create the various shapes.

The sheets are welded together into the shape of the fire basket.
