Ceramics Design

Did you know you can 3-D print ceramics? Well you can! It is super neat technology that is getting better all of the time. I really like traditional ceramics, but I don’t have easy access to a kiln so 3-D printing helps to scratch my design itch. I just ordered some new pieces so until they arrive here are some teaser images….

(If you can’t tell I’ve been really into boxes lately. I like the idea of celebrating the neglected container of other objects.)

    • Sure..

      There are a few companies that currently do it. I get mine printed by Shapeways. This is what they say about it “Ceramics is the first 3D printed food safe material available on Shapeways. The material is produced with fine ceramic powder, which is bound together with a binder, fired, and glaze with a lead-free, non-toxic finish. In addition to being food safe, the material is both recyclable and heat resistant. This material is perfect for cups, saucers, plates, and even statues and figurines.”

      Hope that helps 🙂
