My first ever 3D project consisted in modelling a chandelier, inspired by the one at Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. The complexity of the object allowed me to explore different tools in Autodesk Maya in order to create a variety of 3D elements including the iron structure that supports the chandelier, the distinctive brass floral-inspired ornaments decorating the whole structure and of course a variety of lamps in different sizes. 

Once a year at the theatre, the chandelier is taken down to the level of the seats for maintenance, which includes cleaning, repairing all the lamps and supervising the electrical connections. With the tools of this 3D software, my idea was to recreate that unique event and later on develop an animation.
