The creative process
CONCEPTION OF AN IDEA
Inspiration can pour out of an immersion in nature, an everlasting source of colors, shapes and dimension; it can be the result of everyday life experiences, loaded with desires and emotions; it can lay in the study of the works of the masters from the past, when the sense of beauty was at the very core of every artwork.
DRAWINGS ON PAPER
Initial vague ideas are sketched freehand in a series of drawings until the artists give shape to their original inspiration. All of our products are the result of the creative and precious imaginations of Lineasette’s designers.
The proposals of individual artists lead to discussions within the group, an important, necessary and enriching moment for Lineasette’s designers. Group members contribute their intuition and experience to advance each others’ initial ideas.
THE PROJECT’S FINAL DESIGN
Through team work the artist comes to a final proposal of the product, which aims to achieve both simplicity and richness. The final design is illustrated in a detailed drawing or a technical blueprint, depending on the nature of the project.
THE PRODUCT’S MOLD
The final design is shaped in clay. From that an initial mold is made. This early procedure highlights possible structural or production concerns and allows the artist to assess his or her vision. Revisions are made as necessary until a two dimensional design becomes a three dimensional working model.
THE ORIGINAL PROTOTYPE
When the project becomes definite, a prototype is made of modeled clay in which every detail has been considered. The prototype of more geometrical and linear products can be made on lathes. More fluid, sculptural designs are hand molded.
