Coudre Studio merges digital knowledge with traditional processes. At the moment, they are 3D printing ceramics. The studio uses new machines, but there’s skill involved in controlling them, just like in using a pottery wheel instead of only your hands. This is why they are post-digital artisans, and each piece produced is unique.
The studio is not trying to replicate or optimize the ancestral. They want to make entirely different things, something that would be difficult to achieve by traditional means.
In regular 3D printing methods, the machine’s path is automatically generated to approximate a given 3D shape, but what Coudre Studio does instead is to carefully work on the printer’s path, sometimes even coordinate by coordinate. These pieces are the result of this process. By using custom software and machines, they can use the weight of the clay in their favour, its volume and fall emerging organically from the printer’s gestures rather than from simulated 3D surfaces.
