The studio engages digital fabrication workflows in the production of crafted objects often constrained or informed by stock geometry, equipment, and tooling.

Squiggle Vessels.

Three Chamber Vessel demonstrates the workflow from CAD to foundry at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The form was milled from jewelry wax (constrained to the original stock dimensions) and then brought into a traditional ceramic shell casting process. Differences in expansion rates of jewelry wax and foundry wax account for unique splits in the casting form and impart a process thumbprint on the final object.
