After the hype over Emerging Objects' living 3D-printed cabin, the Oakland-based creative studio launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund its robotic ceramic workshops. The project seeks to fuse one of the oldest craft traditions with the innovative technological developments enjoyed by us today.
The concept of the Bottery is a space that runs educational classes that teach techniques of 3D clay printing to enthusiasts and businesses. The robotic ceramic workshops will be accessible to both beginners and advanced craftspeople and will provide the needed high-tech tools and premium-quality environmentally safe clay and glazes for the development of a creation.
In addition, the Bottery is teaming up with 3D Potter to offer a line of ceramic 3D printers that can be utilized at home, if one wishes to continue to craft after attending a robotic ceramic workshop.
