3D Printing of Bespoke Ceramic Artworks
Abstract:David Huson and colleagues at the Centre for Fine Print Research in the Faculty of Art, Media and Design at the University of the West of England are conducting a three-year AHRC funded research project into the use of Digital Fabrication techniques in the area of bespoke ceramics.
Now in the second year, one of the aims of the project is to develop the methodology of forming a ceramic object directly by the use of 3D printing technologies.
Results to date have shown that the production of a ceramic artefact by this method is viable and that the unique characteristics of this process mean that it is feasible to build a bespoke ceramic artwork that would be difficult to make by any of the conventional forming processes.
This paper will detail the progress of the project so far and will use an account of the design and the production of a bespoke ceramic artwork to illustrate how this new process will allow artists and crafts persons to investigate, develop and implement ideas that were previously unattainable.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
