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.
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!
