Charlie Stern visits Aalto University


Just a bit over a week before the opening of the first Ceramics and its Dimensions: Shaping the Future exhibition Charlie Stern, a Stockholm (Sweden) based artist and researcher will come to visit Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture. During his visit, he will produce his art works for the Ceramics and its Dimensions: Shaping the Future exhibition and also open his artistic process for the students of Aalto. The students have the opportunity to explore the possibilities of 3D ceramic printing, as they can closely follow Charlie’s experimental approach and methods towards design.

This is how Charlie describes the project:

“By developing and distributing a fabrication technique for glass and ceramics, THE TRANSACTION PROJECT articulates the trading, transacting and appropriation of knowledge that is at the center of a craft movement.
Work sessions have taken place in Sweden, Korea, UK, Denmark and now Finland, with a wide variety of glass blowers each being asked to respond to specific designs produced via ceramic 3D printing. The project seeks to apply an open source ethos to a craft process and to use an informal network of makers to explore a new technique. At Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture the project is pleased to work with glass blower Kazushi Nakada.”
