Shaping the Future 2016
Workshop at KAHLA
-Exploration and Exhibition-
The project explores the engagement between traditional craft and digital manufacturing techniques.
Patterns of the two-dimensional saucer/lid vector-file was transferred into three-dimensional nurbs-models and then brought into real life via CNC milling. The CNC milled plaster molds were then used to cast saucers, cups, coffeepots and vases.
They are complemented by wrapped around laser-cut cerafoil parts and attached 3D-printed handles and spouts. The printed spouts were closed by laser cut cerafoil parts.
The traditional cast vessels and the digital manufactured parts all kept together with glaze slip, which was put on with passion by hand .
