Buffalo horn and 14k white gold

2003-2006

Merging old and new, frames are designed in 3D modeling software and CNC cut from water buffalo horn - a natural thermo-plastic from which eyeglasses were made in the 14th century. The hinges are also made through CAD/CAM techniques, then cast in 14k white gold using traditional jewelry methods.
