The Build Blog – Coming into it’s full shape

The heart is coming into it’s final shape.

The inner foam has been carved out and left us with a glowing transparent shell.

Now we are fitting a wooden frame around it and working on the moving parts within.

Moving gears and lighting fixtures are being sketched and carved to fit the inside.

In less than 2 months our beloved heart will be nestled inside Embrace.

The Build Blog – Glue, Resin and Fiberglass

HUGE developments from the Embrace Vancouver Design Crew today! Just to catch you up since our last Build Blog, we have been busy laying down layer upon layer of glue, followed by fiberglass and then on top of that the first signs of colorful design features…Veins!

Here are a few pictures to get you up to speed before an update later on today’s BIRTHING OF THE HEART! Where we pull the foam out from inside its shell.
