ceramic design

self initiated project

The word ayamari is Japanese and means that something went wrong or has an error. Inspired by the book designing japan by Kenya Hara, this title was chosen. Japanese pottery has a long tradition in which perfectionism is very important. The project started with a 3D print of a small vase, which came out with a lot of production errors because of the fact that I switched the printer speed up and left the quality at the lowest. I was then so fascinated by the fact that no matter how precise I would build my CAD file, the 3D printer would make these random errors. I then made three molds to later cast them in porcelain. This project contains a series of vases made of porcelain. The outer surface has small random errors and lines from the print process. Porcelain is a very delicate material and is often used for very precise ceramic work. To break up this preciseness and give it to something very digital and let this choose where the errors should be made was very interesting to me. Our life is mainly controlled by digital products and processes and we rely on its preciseness very much. But to see that nothing is without errors and that we can use these errors to make art really fascinates me.
