Designer James Walsh, gives new life to an age old process with the assistance of modern techniques in the precision manufacture of Terracotta objects.
Presenting a family of vessels, Walsh highlights how a range of plaster moulds can be combined into countless configurations to demonstrate the potential of slipcasting. With the influence of 3D printing in the production of the moulds, each terracotta object demonstrates subtle references to contemporary technology that is only noticeable in the finer details. This juxtaposition of old and new demonstrates that we can still look to the past to inform the future.
