AN INNOVATIVE CATENARY POTTERY PRINTER BY GT2P
If you're an avid reader of Design Milk, you've probably seen all the innovative projects created with a 3D printer. However, we're even more impressed by the newest "printer" from Chilean Studio gt2P, a Catenary Pottery Printer!
The printer was born out of a desire to create standard machines that generate non-standard results by mixing the normal numerical control with traditional material and techniques. It reintroduces the idea that parametric design isn't necessarily always a digital computation methodology.
The pottery printer is an analog machine that uses computational logics and automation processes to form pottery. With the combination of all these factors, the machine can create a variety of objects, from tableware to candle holders to even hanging lights. This pottery printer is more than just a machine—it allows gt2P to speak about parametric design without computers and digital fabrication laboratories.
