Playing with hemp printed sacred geometry

Just a little playing around with 3D printed sacred geometry elements: of course they're made out of Kanesis hemp bio plastic and can be scaled, twisted and combined by design. It's just fun to do it as a board game...



These are the two basic elements. Never-ending combinations...

Printing with hemp

So many things happening in this rush of living and I have almost skipped taking notes of all the developments. One of the most thrilling things ever has already been taking shape for me... actually also volume and dimensions: it's 3D printing. Since I saw it in front of my very eyes just one year ago I made all my efforts to make it happen and now we can also design and print with hemp bio plastic HBP, a biodegradable filament patented by the italian company Kanesis derived from hemp fiber leftovers.

Bamboo handcrafts part one

Some amazing bamboo material has been stored lately, so now it's time to play: small things first, bigger things later on as soon as we get the chance. These are my first simple designs of handcrafted bamboo boxes

Big harvest of big bamboo

Today it's the very last day of this waning moon phase; so it is the ideal time to harvest bamboo and store it for future building and crafting applications. Partnering with italian company Stilverde and thanks to their logistic organization and local connections, we approach an amazing bamboo forest that needs to be properly reduced and managed.


Feels like somewhere else in the world but we are in the southern part of Friuli, in the north east of Italy. It's a really gorgeous site...

Colors change

Time is passing and the colors of the season are definitely changing: the ginkgo trees have grown this year but now it's time for them to rest. 


I have seen other ginkgo trees here in Italy, already grown tall and bearing fruits. They are planted around a busy round-about so I do not dear to try them: anyway seeing the fruits it's a good sign. Hopefully we'll find a place for them in the ground soon.
