Silvester Mok works mainly with 3D printed ceramics using a self-assembled printer. After graduating from Hong Kong Art School, he has combined two favorite media as his way of making, including 3D modeling and ceramics.
Compared to pot pinching, machine has dominated the ceramics forming process in 3D printing. Clay was forced to squeeze out from the nozzle at a precise coordinate, creating clay objects in a digital way. And Mok explores the new role of ceramist in this digital process.
The precision and accuracy of the machine make a huge contrast with clay, a material that easily deforms over weight and water content. Printed form collapses and rests on a balanced profile that can hold its weight, and the new silhouette is captured by fire permanently.
