Kenda, a student in Vietnam, shares his initial artisan casting on Geekhack, with several sculpts from ogres to owls to skulls. Latee that year in September, Kenda then launches the DCCaps Instagram account, and proceeds to have a debut sale of his Owl sculpt. His initial exposure is primarily within the local VNMK community, but he quickly gains the attention of internal collectors. With minimal available resources for equipment, DCcaps initial caps are all gravity cast, and incredibly clean examples of the technique with virtually no visible bubbles. This maker would go on to hone his craft, make distinctly cute sculpts with cleanly separated casts, and become a popular maker.
