work samples, 3-week project residency, European Ceramic Work Center, Oesterwijk, NL, summer 2015
I used the center’s FabLab to research, design, and prototype a method to slip-cast the airplanes in porcelain. The technical staff at the center helped in the development of a method using compressed air to pressure-cast the objects employing molds designed and produced using CAD/CAM technology.
