there’s a saturation of rapid prototyping solutions on the market, and although many them aren’t capable of producing objects at human scale, eindhoven-based artist olivier van herpt developed a new technique for 3D printing ceramics in medium and large scale. during his on-going research and experimentation process, he modified and configured an extruding machine able to manufacture objects up to 80 cm in height and with a diameter of 42 cm. by altering the settings of the bespoke 3D printer, van herpt created a series of different clay pieces such as the 3D woven collection and sediment collection, which comprises thin layers of ceramics.

  • to take this beyond and combine pieces that could not be hand made into objects of the next level and the level beyond that.
