Abstract

This paper illustrates some of the outcomes from research carried out by the
main author as art jeweller in the Laser Processing Research Centre (LPRC)
in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at The
University of Manchester. The work shows examples of surface marking of
titanium using a 60 W CO2 10.6 μm laser for the production of jewellery and
observes the effects caused by heat delivered to the titanium substrate.
Points are addressed such as the distance created between artist and
technology, allowing ‘accidents’ to happen in a necessarily precise and safe
environment and the need for closer communication between disciplines in
order to understand the potential of emerging technologies for art and design.
