Olivier Van Herpt has developed a process for delivering and manufacturing larger ceramic materials using 3D technology. It seems as if an abundant number of objects are being made this way these days, so Herpt thought he would see how this could translate into the world of ceramics.
The machine thus allows him to make different designs and sizes or objects such as bowls and cups. The interesting thing here is how distinct each one is, since most would think the results would be quite generic. However, the variety is evident, making one question the meaning of "craftsmanship" behind this art.
From objects used in surgeries to devices put together allowing pets to recover from injuries, 3D printed materials is becoming more and more common, and Olivier Van Herpt knew ceramics would be no different.
