Studio Joachim-Morineau's machine-made ceramics are at the crux of technology and artisanal authenticity. The Eindhoven-based design firm developed a dripping machine that has the ability to create unique ceramic products with immense mathematical precision. The device consists of a rotating platform that is controlled via a computer and a dripping system that dispenses liquid porcelain at a set pace to create different patterns.

The process includes the placement of a plaster mold onto the platform and the filling of the dripping system with liquid clay. The machine-made ceramics become free from human error, although the process cannot be fully controlled. Studio Joachim-Morineau's dripping system is considered to be "the link between crafts and industries," highlighting how technology can be used to perfect an old and traditional form of human art.
