For her limited collection of two-sided Temple vases, designer Karolína Vintrová used the innovative technology of 3D printing ceramic clay. “When overcoming the limits of 3D printing, I decided to orient the direction of printing in an unusual direction – not the usual horizontal lines, but vertical,” explains Vintrová. The body of the vase is separated into two halves during the 3D printing process, and she constructs them by using the technique of the pointed arch found in Gothic architecture. This logic enables the designer to construct the arches vertically without the risk of collapse. She then joins the two halves manually and retains the seeming imperfections which give an indelible mark of originality to the otherwise machine-produced object.
