The handicraft sector in many industries is rapidly being replaced by machines. Industrialized high-efficiency production methods have indeed brought high profits and benefits to enterprises, and have also reduced instabilities of manual manufacturing. But in turn, some of the uncontrollable factors of handicraft create unique attributes for each product itself. How to combine handicraft imperfection and the standardization of industrial production is the theme of the project.
Insert a piece of fabric of the right size into the mould for slip casting. When slip is being poured into the mould, the liquid automatically attaches the fabric to the inner wall of the mould due to gravity, that is, the inner wall of one mould is covered by the fabric. Correspondingly, half of the ceramic texture of the demoulded ceramic product comes from the fabric texture. According to this mechanism, each of the ceramic is different. In order to make mass production full of randomness and flexible mould
Half of the ceramic after the moulding is like being elegantly wrapped by the fabric, resulting in an interesting contrast with the smooth, natural surface pattern coming out of traditional moulding. This explored the possibility of different roles of traditional fabrics in mould production. The uncertainty caused by artificial factors is thereby transformed into the unique beauty of the product itself. In the context of mass production, giving each product a unique shape will result in the unique relationship between the product and the customer.
