Tea and Coffee

This year, WWU's industrial design seniors were challenged to design a twelve piece tea and coffee set. I focused on developing minimalist, art-deco-inspired forms that communicate purpose and create a sense of desire.

I have focused on developing my fluency with ceramics this year. I mixed my own clay body, made plaster molds, and mixed my own glaze for the final set.


 

Iteration

I made dozens of models out of paper, wood scraps, and cardboard before turning to CAD. I used 3D printed models as molds for ceramic slip casting.

Process

In addition to creating realistic display models for the WWU Industrial Design senior show at the end of the year, I created a seven fully functional ceramic tea sets, with extra sets of two cups.
