I was going through some old projects the other day and I came across this old salt & pepper shaker project from college, two simple forms that intersect. More of a prototyping assignment than anything, but a fun little study.
It got me thinking, what would I change about them now… 25 years later?
- One is aluminum the other is wood, but which is salt and which is pepper? This could probably be clearer.
- One is primitive cylinder and the other has curvature… with the height and material change is the added form difference really needed? I don’t think so.
- Why does one have a chamfer and the other doesn’t? That is annoying.
You know how it goes, what starts out as a little thinking turns into a doodle turns into “let me CAD this up real quick”… famous last words. Nothing serious, just having fun
