Head to Head: Potter versus 3D printer

IMG_0408

Geoff Kenward, Chair of London Potters took on jeweller Mark Bloomfield in a challenge between making using traditional potters techniques and state of the art 3D printing. It is interesting to think about how modern technology can be used by the world of craft to enhance their skills. An interesting exhibition last year at the Contemporary demonstrated various aspects of the latest technology being applied by makers. Of course, Michael Eden, whose work sits at the intersection of craft, design and art, exploring contemporary themes through the redesign of historical, culturally familiar objects utilising digital manufacturing and materials has been stretching the envelop with modern design for many years. others such as Halima Cassell have developed new techniques using traditional materials and skills.

Have a look at the video on the BBC News Magazine. I found it challenged me to think more laterally about the ways craft can change and develop in the future using all the new technologies that are developing fast.   http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-29941354
