Here’s a really interesting approach to porcelain I wasn’t aware of. The process is pretty cool since it includes a 3D printer, but the results are what really caught my imagination. Very nice!

In honor of Ceramics Month here at MAKE, I reached out to my friend Fonda Yoshimoto, an artist who enjoys working with clay. Here she talks about two different ways of creating ceramic art: one modern — 3D modeling and printing a prototype in order to make a mold; and one old — etching very thin porcelain to take advantage of the translucency once fired.
Exploring Technology, Finding Tradition

I took a class called “Digital and Clay” when I was going to school at the Rhode Island School of Design. In the class we used 3D modeling software (Maya) and 3D printing to create prototypes. We then used our prototypes to create molds to cast in porcelain.
