3D printing meets stoneware

By Ben Everard. Posted

3D printing is great for all sorts of reasons, and one oft-overlooked application is on 3D-printing moulds. This stoneware vase by Allie Katz looks like a traditional glazed, fired piece of pottery but it began life as a CAD design. Allie printed it, then turned it into a mould to remake the design in a more traditional material.

Allie’s working on a video about the technique and how people can potentially create their own. Keep an eye out for it on their YouTube channel.

Stoneware clay shrinks by close to 30% on firing, so this vase is a good bit smaller than the original 3D-printed version
