distortions process

2012

 

The project started with the concept for a machine that would deform casted vaseses. This way uniform shaped objects would transform into unique pieces. Over the course of the semester the concept of the machine transformed more into a methode to deform ceramics and express uncontrolled nature of the clay.

Prototype #1 Process: Each vase is cast from the same mold. When the clay is still damp and sensitive for any move, vases got randomly deform by the machine.

My next step was to explore more ways to create designed deformation process.   By using specially designed rubber mold and compressed air I created the method for "controlled uncontrolled deformations" to happen.

Rubber mold was replaced with CNC milled wooden multipart mold.
