In collaboration with Kelly Devitt
This series of vases was a collaboration which extenuated Kelly’s knowledge of ceramics and Erin’s computation and 3D printing abilities. By using Grasshopper 3D, a visual programing language for Rhinoceros 3D, Erin was able to design a definition with a number of parameters. This allowed Kelly to aid in the design process through the manipulation of a variety of variables. Once designed, the vases were printed using a Potterbot 7 ceramic 3D printer, glazed and fired. This Grasshopper definition allows for an infinite number of vase adaptions. When this is combined with a knowledge of glazing techniques the possible variations are endless.
