The Minerva Owl public art sculpture trail aims to celebrate Bath's Roman heritage and raise money for local charities. We worked with the Minerva Owl’s team to create a digitised computer model of a sculpted clay owl. We used a high precision structured light scanner to capture a complete model of the owl and used this to create the digital model. The digital model was subsequently used to machine a resin model of the owl from which the fibreglass moulds were manufactured.

It was really great to work on a local project with such an enthusiastic team, and I hope it will get more people interested in the design and manufacture teaching and research we undertake at the University.
