Uncommon Methods Uncommon Objects
Uncommon Methods Uncommon Objects is a material and process exploration that considers fabrication and materiality in regard to the modern designer/maker. By drawing on the visible connections between method and object, the works are a reflection on contemporary manufacturing, reproduction and the pursuit of individuality in design.
The digital to physical workflow for casting and mould making aims to create a connection between the process and product by designing objects that promote the method’s unique physical characteristics. With a focus on developing forms for sculptural furniture and lighting design, these prototypes explore the possibilities of the unique production method and how objects can create visible references to how they were made.
The method utilises a self-built clay extruder to 3D print ceramic moulds for casting in metal and other materials.
