Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Interactive ceramics by Scott Rench

I recieved an email from Chicago based ceramist and art director/graphic artist Scott Rench, telling me about his Interactive Ceramics that are being displayed at the Fragiles exhibition in Miami Design 2007. This is what Scott has to say about his project:

"I started this series of work after thinking about people and the art they live with. I wanted to create something that engaged the viewer in its creation and evolution."

So this is a piece of art you can change according to your mood, or for the decorating freaks among us that want their artwork to match the rest of the room. :-)

And this is how he does it:

"My ceramic work, consists of computer generated images that are printed with a ceramic glaze onto a large canvas of clay. Creating and collecting images, I scan them into the computer and manipulate them to fit the concept. The new image is output onto transparent film that acts as a stencil for transferring the image to a silk-screen. Glaze is then used (instead of ink) to print the image on to a slab of clay. Once completely dry the slabs are fired in a kiln, producing an image that will stand the test of time indoor or outdoor."

Some other cool findings from the Fragiles exhibit:
