Aresta

Aresta is a cutlery collection made with cast silver..

 

Goal:

The main goal of the project was to experiment with silver casting manufacturing process. From the initial stage of modelling the parts with wax until the final polishing process phase.

 

Result:

A set of fork, knife and spoon made with silver. The collection was named “Aresta” (“Edge” in Catalan) due to its sharp lines design. The process started by shaping the items up with PU foam to define the final aesthetic design. After that, I modeled them again with a specific wax for casting followed by the realization of the three different silicon moulds to finally cast the silver and polish the final parts.
