Chalice in metal
Design: Paolo Uccello and Gavin Miller
Modeling: John Miller
Photography: Roland Miller
The chalice was assembled from several pieces. Each piece was carved from
solid aluminium. The tolerances on the machinining process were set deliberately
high to achieve a faceted effect. The base was carved using an end mill
to give sharp concavities. The original idea of reverse engineering this
object was taken from the BBC television series, The Ascent of Man.
