Produced at the EKWC-European Ceramic Work Centre’s new CAD/CAM facility.
“Audiowear”, is a series of musical jewelry inspired by idiophone and aerophone instruments and the acoustic quality of clay : a Trumpet bracelet, a Guiro cuff, a Whistle necklace, a Pan-flute collar, a Rattle and Xylophone bangles. Designed in Rhino software, the models were first printed on the ZPrinter 450. Moulds were designed by splitting the models into parts and printing contra-mould parts for some more complex objects. After building the plaster moulds, all the instruments were slip-cast in porcelain.
