International Design Project: Catenary Pottery Printer
Presented by NGV & RMIT University

NGV International

Free entry

Celebrating the inaugural Melbourne Design Week, international guests designers Chilean design studio Great Things to People (gt2P) present their Catenary Pottery Printer under the Federation Court atrium at NGV International.

Exploring the boundaries between digital and analogue machines, this thought provoking work reveals the thinking behind the creation of non-standard objects – normally a realm reserved for inside the computer. gt2P’s low-tech resourcefulness uses a fabric sling, suspended at adjustable intervals, to mould liquid clay into beautiful vessels. As ceramic slip drains and dries, one of a kind objects are created.

Over the course of Melbourne Design Week gt2P will lead local designers and students to create their own custom works with the Catenary Pottery Printer. Visitors can witness the design process in action, with works exhibited from various stages of production. This project is supported by the staff and students from RMIT University’s School of Architecture and Design, Industrial Design Program.

Gt2P will discuss their transdisciplinary practice which spans architecture, product design, edition pieces and experimental works in a keynote presentation, find out more here.
