What is ist?

Local clay was made more pliable for 3D printing by adding biomaterial. This enables the development of complex geometrical ceramic elements, which can be used indoors and outdoors, and may serve as a link between architecture and clay construction. This work is an interplay of traditional craftsmanship and digital technology

What is the Topic?

traditional craftsmanship and digital

Why does it look like this?

The idea is to bring old geometric shapes and symbols to new creative levels by using modern technology. These forms (because of the complex geometry) are only possible to do by 3D print

What is special?

The particularity of the individual objects lies precisely in this interplay of traditional craftsmanship and the design possibilities of the digital.

What is new?

3D ceramic printing is opening up the possibility of developing new ceramic forms with complex geometrical elements, which can be used indoors and outdoors, and thus as a link between architecture and clay construction.
