Toyota's Calty Design: Clay Modelling

toyotaclay.jpgYesterday Toyota (for the first time) opened up it's Calty Design Research doors to a tiny group of journalists (Core77, KCRW/NPR, Architect Magazine, Dwell, Inhabitat, DesignMom, Zaproot, and i was honored to be included in the group)... and as we all know, security and secrecy in the car industry is nearly impenetrable, with design secrets that manage to be kept under wraps for years before the public even gets wind of the concepts, it was an honor (and SO much fun) to get an inside look at Toyota's studios and their work flow... AND to be able to share it with you!

So first off, my favorite part ~ really it brought out the kindergartner in all of us, get handed a tool, and a HUGE (yes, life size car sized) piece of clay, and are told to go to it. And then sat down at a bench with mini's to carve away at your own car? Ok so perhaps that only slightly over simplifying it, but i'm sure you can imagine the delight of poking at clay... while assisted by some of the most talented car designer and modelers... who with a quick flip of their wrist and a few slashes with a pairing knife, off fly a few pieces of clay and you're staring at the dream sportscar you never knew you wanted. Then you see what my unplanned mohawked/finned masterpiece turns out like after more effort and less finesse. Let's just say we fully understand and were quickly humbled by how skilled these modelers and designer are...

So take a look inside the Toyota Calty Design Research modeling space on the next page, and our experience hands on with the clay!

Wool Teddy Bear Fetuses and Skulls

Teddy-Fetal-Development.jpg"Wow." That's pretty much the best i can come up with initially to describe Stephanie Metz's incredible use of wool for her felted sculptures exambining the anatomy of of the fetal development of teddy bears, and their skulls... and that before you even see her large breasted cow, leggless lap chihuahua, adorable bull dog and rabbits... See more images below, as well as an excerpt on her process to develop these intriguing creatures! I saw these over at DesignBoom, which led me to sweetest blog i can't believe its taken me this long to discover, Street Anatomy... anyhow, see after the jump for more pics of Metz's felted creatures!
