Research Description

3D Technologies
The basis of my research is based on the merging of 3D technologies, such as 3D scanning and printing, with traditional ceramic building methods to produce a body of work that discusses how these technologies are capable of extending the inventiveness of ceramic artists by exceeding the limitations encountered when working exclusively with ones hands. This research will also focus on the concept of status symbols and what defines objects as impressionable and important, in order to demonstrate that these technologies are capable of producing high quality, intricate and functional ceramics otherwise not attainable through traditional hand building methods.
