3D Designer Andrew Beaumont Mixes Ceramics & Woods In His Trapped Vases.
An honours graduate in 3D design from the Univeristy of Plymouth, Andrew Beaumont uses digital technology along with his plaster mold casts to combine unusual materials and create strikingly original pieces. Mixing ceramics, earthenware and bone china with various woods, he has created a collection of 'trapped' vases and figurines unlike anything else you have likely seen before.
Below are many images from his impressive portfolio. I have also included some of his beautiful freehand sketches.

Andrew is currently looking for employment as a designer or a producer for his unusual pieces.
