Variations on a Cup

PLA, 3D printing
Created during residency at the Benyamini
Contemporary Ceramics Center, Tel Aviv

Variations on a cup is a project I created during my residency at the Benyamini Contemporary Ceramics Center. These objects are malformations of a generic cup, trying to see how far I can distort the original shape while still maintaining some of its "essence". In my work I like to take an archetype and work with it as my material,  and cup is a very familiar shape, an everyday object that we can all relate to. 

 

In order to create this project I have sketched hundreds of cup distortions. I have selected my favorite sketches and began the 3D modelling process. After the modelling process, the objects are made by 3d printing using a plastic PLA material that resembles clay and gives an earthenware clay material feeling.
