Turkish Coffe Cup
Mental is this cup form is actually a summary of Turkish cultural history! Geometric handle Seljuk period; Cloud motif Ottoman period; while the cylindrical form represents the element that carries both cultures today !
I had already done this cup form on the potter's wheel. My next aim was to witness how the form will look when the same form is made on the CNC Lathe
Also technical is this cup form also a visible result of the research work on "From the Potter's Wheel to the CNC Tool".
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
From Potter's Wheel to the CNC Lathe:
The purpose of this study was to emphasize on the wide range of applications of this self-sufficient independent tool potter’s wheel and see how much and what kind of result CNC can contribute to the existing designs by actually using it.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
I've done this coffee cup on the potter's wheel before.
Later, if I did the same form at the CNC, I wondered how it would look.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Lasted for 6 months
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
For must production:The design was drawn on the computer. Production molds produced with CNC.
The production was made with Casting by porcelain clay
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
plate Ø : 12.5cm
cup total : 13cm
Ø: 6.5 cm
h: 8 cm
From Potter’s Wheel to CNC Lathe
Each and every product made by using potter’s wheel is an unique even if you perform mass production! The traces of the artist’s hands stay with the product until the destroying of the object. CNC lathe, on the other hand, provides perfection and mechanical feeling to the product, which also gives an unique elegant look!
And the primary purpose here is mass production. What we wanted to do was to combine the warmth of potter’s wheel and precision of CNC lathe into a mass production ware.
