3D-printed ornament Alterfact.
Alterfact is an experimental design studio established by Lucile Sciallano and Ben Landau. The studio produces small batch 3D-printed ceramic pieces using a printer that they built themselves.
The works presented here formed part of their exhibition, Ornament is Fine, held at the National Gallery of Victoria. The series experiments with the idea of ornaments, contributing to this long historical lineage through an inventive design process using digital printing. Enabling Alterfact to achieve designs that are virtually impossible to make by hand, the studio embraces the unpredictable artefacts sometimes produced as a result of their experimental process of 3D-printing clay.
