Slip casting molds are usually fixed. Each new design needs a new mold to be made.
This project by Julian Bond was about giving anyone the ability to engage with the slip casting technique and allowing them to create a one off design. The machine is designed to engage with the user allowing them to understand the form they are creating. This is a rapid manufacturing tool, not rapid prototyping, each piece that is made can be fired and glazed and used as a final product.
