In order to manufacture final products, machines are becoming less and less dependent on humans. As a result, the typical human touch is disappearing from almost all products we use and see in our day-to-day life. The items created with the “pressing-machine” emphasize the meaning of human actions in creating objects.
The choice to extrude profiles and the way one moves the presser has a huge influence on the esthetical appearance of the final artifact.
With the project Pressed method, humans and machines are working together in harmony; they need each other in order to create objects. Due to this distinctive craftsmanship, each unique object can be seen as a combination of mechanical production and handmade artifacts.
During the manufacturing process the epoxy-clay is pressed through the extrusion profiles. As a result, machine and human behavior will not only define the product’s shape but also its tint. Combinations of the extrusion profiles are endless; therefore there are also an enormous variety of exclusive objects.Studio Floris Wubben
