Remember Peter Biddulph's guinomi in the first Pace show?

The digital processes Phoebe McDonald talked about in her show and tell (Nov 10) are similar to those used by Peter Biddulph to make the guinomi shown in the first Pace exhibition, Drawling.

You'll find photos of the guinomi on a previous post on this blog, and this:  "The source objects for the guinomi were created as digital 3D forms before being rendered as physical objects using rapid prototyping technology. Casts taken from these generated objects were used to create the vessels using liquid porcelain, sometimes mixed with oxides, in a slip cast process." The vessels were polished by hand and interiors glazed.

Perfect mix of rapid and slow pace, of ancient & new methods, skills and knowledge.
