I made some laser cut fresnel algae forms inspired by Ernst Haeckel.  Rather then straightup tracing Haeckel, first I sketched out the image, then traced over my sketch, which added life and variability to the image.

I designed and 3d printed the middle object to add sculptural depth the the algae.  The one on the right is printed in colorfab HT clear filament, right is hatchbox abs painted metallic blue-green.IMG_0678
