Emerging Objects: GCODE.Clay

By Ronald Rael GCODE.Clay is a series of objects 3D printed in various clays (porcelain, bmix, terra-cotta, and recycled clay) that explore the creative potential of designing with G-code, the language in which people tell computerized machine tools how to make something. In this case the 3D printer is pushed outside the boundaries of what […]
