Slip Rabbit Studio Internship
Ceramic 3D Printing
The Project: To explore the intersection of design, art, and math in tactile manners through 3D-printed ceramics.
Internship at Slip Rabbit Studio
The process of 3D printing has allowed for countless opportunities for material exploration. Each involves important planning in material and printer considerations.
3D printing has allowed for innovation in the way ideas are made into reality and paves the way for even abstract concepts to be made physical.
How might we push the boundaries of what ceramic 3D printing can represent?
Practical products can be made from 3D printed ceramics, allowing exploration in geometric possibilities, while retaining functionality.
My role for this project consisted of designing and modeling the mugs on screen to prepare for printing. I aided in the printing of the products, while Timea Tihanyi, the director of the studio, finished the ceramic aspects of firing and glazing.
Lawson Minimal Surfaces
The intersection of art and math is one commonly explored by Slip Rabbit Studio. The fabrication of a Lawson minimal surface with genus four necessitated considerations into overhanging material and material weight.
My role for this project consisted in doing CAD model iterations of the shapes to prepare for 3D printing, while the research, concept, and printing was done by Slip Rabbit Studio.
