Material of interest
PETG (glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate)
Each template was cut from PETG (glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate) sheets, before being thermoformed into shape using a neatly designed adaptable mould. This material can either be produced from recycled plastic, or more pertinent to this location, from sugar cane: a plant that has been an integral part of the culture of Louisiana for over 200 years.
