    Arts & Culture

    As mentioned in my earlier post, I have changed the direction of my thesis. Instead of using the current skills of the artisans and simply creating a new product that is not already being made, I am trying to explore the material's potential to create something that the artisans are not used to making and did not think of doing with bone.

    I want to explore how I could possibly manipulate the material to interact with light- so I am developing architectural panels.

    My product compared with other, existing ones:

    -it is hand crafted by artisans

    -use of a material that is not currently being used in this industry

    -manufacture of product provides fair wages to artisans that are currently being exploited

    -the material is 100% environmentally sustainable

    -manipulation of an age-old material that has not been explored in this way before
