CURRENTLY IN PROGRESS
MIXED REALITY CERAMIC FABRICATION 2021:
CERAMIC COMPONENTRY


This course investigated new methods of digital design by exploring fabrication methods that hybridize contemporary technologies with the traditions of ceramic craft. The ambition of this seminar was for students to conceptualize, digitally simulate, and then prototype ceramic furniture with the aid of mixed reality tools. Each group utilized Microsoft’s HoloLens2 headsets and the Fologram mobile phone app to fabricate, glaze, and assemble customized ceramic parts into full-scale pieces. Fabrication of these prototypes necessitated the production of plaster molds, slip casting of clay parts, and mixed reality aided clay construction and glazing..
