converging disciplines - exploring digital crafts
An experiment on the application of ceramic 3D printing as a form for glass blowing; an example of how digital processes and craftsmanship can merge. The explorative design process was mainly controlled by the manufacturing process and its underlying factors. By changing digital parameters, horizontal and vertical structures of varying intensities were created, which were then individually formed in the glass.
An unlimited series of drinking vessels with the same basic shape but different surfaces was created. The traces of the additive production process are more than mere decoration - rather they refer to their origin as a kind of relic. The strictly defined drinking glasses are replaced by formally identical ones that gain in individuality.
