Onformative

Onformative, founded by Julia Laub and Cedric Kiefer in Berlin, is a studio specialized in generative design solutions covering various types of media and topics. Provoked by our curiosity, we are always in search of new forms of expression. We gain abundant experience from our experimental work, enabling us to apply new and unconventional methods of design in our projects.” [via onformative]

“Rapid technical advances justifiably raise concerns about the decline of established techniques and manual crafts.
In our Porcelain Experiments we attempted to bridge the gap between tradition and progress and to gain new insights into materials and techniques that were still unfamiliar to us.

The three-dimensional models for these forms were generated digitally and exported as STL-File using tools that we developed using processing. The negatives of these 3D models were transmitted as data to a CNC milling machine, which used this information to mill the plaster block, giving physical form to the digital models.

When porcelain is manufactured it is customary to pour the liquid porcelain into the negative plaster mold of the previously sculpted object. Once the porcelain has hardened around the edges of the mold, excess material is removed and the object is taken out of the mold. After the piece has been fired several times, a glaze can be applied to give the porcelain piece a shiny surface.”

Keep your Dreams alive. To acheive anything you must understand that it requires faith and belief in yourself. Remember, all things are possible for those who dont stop believing.
