3D printed ceramics open totally new prospects for ceramic artwork and schooling, and on this episode, we communicate with two pioneers on this space to be taught extra about what will be finished. Be a part of us as we sit down with Abiam Alvarez, Ceramics and Studio Arts Trainer at Ann Sobrato Excessive College, and Timea Tihanyi, founder and director of Slip Rabbit Studio, a technoceramics studio within the Pacific Northwest, and a instructing professor within the Interdisciplinary Visible Arts program on the College of Washington. Each have finished wonderful work with 3D-printed ceramics and can share their experiences with us on this episode.
If you’re unfamiliar with 3D printed ceramics, it could be useful to know a bit of about the way it works. As a substitute of utilizing plastic and different filament supplies extruded by way of a nozzle to create an object, the ceramic 3D printer makes use of clay that’s extruded by way of a big syringe that’s geared up with a plunger to push the fabric out by way of the tip in layers that construct the ultimate product.
Most of the desktop ceramic 3D printers just like the 3D Potter – use the cardinal axis system fairly than the delta printer configuration, which implies the mattress platform that the clay object is being created on is transferring whereas the syringe stays stationary. Within the video beneath, you’ll be able to see how most of the desktop ceramic 3D printers work.
There are additionally bigger industrial-sized ceramic 3D printers that mean you can make a number of giant objects continuous if mixed with a steady movement hopper, resembling constructions and partitions, however on this episode of 3D Universe Untethered, we might be specializing in desktop ceramic 3D printing with a deal with how they’re being utilized in instructional settings.
Abiam and Timea share a whole lot of lovely photos of their 3D printed ceramic artwork items on this episode and we extremely encourage you to look at when you’ve gotten time, so that you just don’t miss out on their distinctive items they’ve made!
Under, one can find the video in addition to the podcast hyperlinks and bios for every of them!

Abiam Alvarez | Ceramics and Studio Arts Trainer at Ann Sobrato Excessive College
Abiam Alvarez grew up in Leon Guanajuato, Mexico for 9 years earlier than migrating to the US in 1999 and settling within the small California city named Firebaugh, which is a farming group city surrounded by many fields of crop. Abiam skilled among the labors by way of the agriculturally associated jobs out there within the summers as he grew up and attended faculty.

His roots are carefully tied to the central valley, the place he grew up and makes work that speaks of the labors and political points surrounding agriculture, consumerism, and immigrant staff whereas engaged on his MFA diploma at San Jose State College.
Try this episode of 3D Universe Untethered and learn the way he’s utilizing 3D printed ceramics along with his college students, how he taught himself how one can use this expertise and see a few of his lovely work!
