[ SPRING '16 ]
This project is part of an exhibition by the 3D Design Department at the Cranbrook Academy of Art at the 2016 Collective Design Fair. The exhibition was entitled "Fine Design for the End of the World" (cranbrookfinedesign.com) and the purpose was to critically analyze the social, economic, and environmental uncertainties of the future through the lens of fine design.
These vessels are a reminder that we are slowly and unapologetically depleting the earth of its resources. As the climate changes and agriculture begins to fail, how much will be left?
[ PROCESS ]
The molds for these vessels were made of plaster that had been directly CNC milled. By eliminating a finishing tool path I seamlessly integrated pattern and form. The molds were then used to slip cast porcelain and the forms were then bisque fired.
