A workshop on the 5th of February
An introduction to the use of the upcoming technology of 3D printing combined with the art of ceramics and pottery, using a 3D potter clay printer. The workshop will explore the possibilities of 3D printing looking at the strengths and weaknesses of the extrusion ceramic 3D printing with clay, from generating digital files to preparing clay and then printing. We will talk about the tools and the methods and a printing demo will follow.
No previous experience with the technology is needed but experienced participants will be able to follow easier the terminology of the technical aspects. Participants can bring their designs in a digital file (.stl) to examine the ability to be printed at a later time.
Nikos Athanasopoulos (aka Niklas) is a product designer and a leading exponent of ceramic 3D printing. His ceramics are recognizable for their strong sculptural quality and emphasis on form. The shapes of his pots are generated in computer code. He has developed this working process out of an interest in the way computer code can mimic natural codes, patterns and growth structures.
