In this project the synergies are used by rapid prototyping and traditional production techniques, to create sustainable optimized porcellain products or even to create new ones. The aim is to explore design related benefits of 3D technique to build casting cores, structures or surfaces, which can be reproduced serially in porcelain classic casting method. Analogical and digital manufacturing techniques are in constant interplay, to reveal their potential in experimental studies and to be applied after their evaluation in the final design process.


„The whole is more than the sum of its parts.“ Aristoteles.

My idea is based on the fact, that handle mugs were always made of two pieces. I wanted to avoid this concept by letting my cup and handle merging into one form. The digital implementation is thus justified by the required exactness.

BÚHO is a set consisting of a jug and a cup. Jug and cup should be freed from the handle, because for me these are jointed objects. My approach was to fuse tube and handle to one form. For an exact symmetry of the body, the tubes were digitally modeled and printed for the mould construction with the help of 3D printing procedure.
