Genre/Medium: Lost-wax cast pewter model
This pewter model roughly has the overall shape of Psyche, as inferred from radar observations. On top, I added a bunch of cool surface features, such as craters, ridges, and cracks. For these features I was inspired by the results of high velocity impact experiments that I performed using iron meteorites as targets. I really wonder if Psyche will look like my model!
