Peter Bodenham the course leader of the BA Ceramics & Jewellery course has been undertaking research into 3D printing, ceramics and metal with the aim of combining traditional craft skills with digital technology. With the Help of the college, Matt Long and Karl Sedgwick the digital illustration tutors at Coleg Sir Gar, Pete is working on attachments printed in stainless steel bonded to traditional thrown ceramic functional vessels.
It still amazes me that you can construct a digital file send it to a 3D printer, then you get this metal object through the post that has been printed in metal or many other materials. The possibilities for design and especially jewellery are infinite.
