Bathsheba Grossman

Bathsheba Grossman

Bathsheba Grossman was born in 1966 in a small town in the northeast US. She began by getting a degree in mathematics from Yale (1988), then changed course to get an art degree at the University of Pennsylvania (1993). She studied sculptural principles and metalworking with Erwin Hauer and Robert Engman, mathematical sculptors who were both trained by Josef Albers.

After several years' experience making bronze sculpture by traditional methods, she switched in 1998 to CAD/CAM and began designing sculpture digitally for production by 3D printing. Since then she has been making sculpture using many technologies including lost-wax casting, electroforming, stereolithography, ZCorp printing, and most recently Prometal direct steel printing; along the way he also started Protoshape, a 3D printing service bureau.

She also designs artwork for subsurface laser etching in glass, and in that medium he has created a line of scientific images based in astronomy, molecular biology and mathematics, and a service for imaging protein structures that is used by most major pharmaceutical companies and many research centers. Most recently she designed a museum exhibit for the University of Syracuse, in the form of a laser-etched model of the Milky Way Galaxy, opening December 2004.

At the origin of Flame.MGX lies a sculpture made from a blob of clay, which was cut into a cube. Four corners were twisted clockwise, while the four other corners were twisted counter clockwise. The lampshade that originated from this sculpture is based on translucency and the interior volume is opened up entirely towards light and perception. The symmetry of this design is rather uncommon: rotating clockwise as viewed from above, counter clockwise as viewed from below, which means that reflecting this design in a mirror has the same effect as turning it upside down.

The Quin.MGX design marks the end of a series that has spanned the designers’ sculptural life to date, beginning with the four-sided tetrahedron and progressing through the five Platonic solids to the last and most mystical of them, the twelve-sided dodecahedron. In the first four shapes Plato saw the elements that make up the material world, but in this fifth he saw the nature and wholeness of the entire universe, the spiritual quintessence. This light-sculpture is a household embodiment of that unity: the Quintrino.
