image: fung kwok pancrack is project by singapore designer fung kwok pan that aims to create forms through deliberate imperfections in the design and fabrication phase. these process failures create a final form that is dependent of forces of nature and randomness. the crack vase is the first iteration of this project, modeled after an ancient vase that has been digitally modified into a faceted design. the vase is made using a four piece starch mold that is prematurely removed during the wax molding process to obtain small deviations. based on these wax models, a shell mold was made for ceramic casting. this ceramic shell is fired and filed with aluminum. breaking the ceramic shell reveals the final aluminum vase.
