Ceramic 3d Printing

From knife to hammer to 3d printer, the influence of tools on a design is not to be underestimated. Yet for a long time the instruments of production were closed systems. This is now changing. Following the personal computer and a range of digital advances, the advent of the personal fabricator has provoked a revival of the idea of “making your own things.” There is a new species of design, semi-industrial craft, and although the definition of craft often refers to work by hand, in this context it reflects a renewed interest in building knowledge through repetition and practice of a skilled trade using the aid of tools.
