Combining Digital 3D Printing With Throwing

Friday, July 20th, 2012





I have been working with Matt Long at Coleg Sir Gar on 3D digital printing using Z-Brush programme. The attachment on the top of lidded jar was created on a Mac then printed out in Stainless Steel by Shapeways.I have a feeling that this technology will have a big part in shaping the future of design craft culture.  I am most interested in these digital methods when they are combined with traditional processes.










Teaching in Kansas State Uni

Friday, July 20th, 2012



I visited kansas State Uni Ceramics department in April 2012. Dylan Beck the professor of the ceramics gave me a great welcome and introduction to the U.S education system and the U.S ceramics world. I was very impressed by the facilities, the quality of work and the welcome I received. I would highly recommend post graduate study at k-State.
