First attempt at mould-making with silicone and casting in Jesmonite

A small test, mould-making from the lumpy Space Rocks created using Meshmixer, plus the resulting Jesmonite cast.

Was also fascinated by the data visualisation of Stamen Design’s Big Glass Microphone. Have long been interested in how to turn environmental data such as electronic / radio signals and sound / vibration levels into aesthetically appealing  visual or audio representations.

And some examples that may be worth trying:
