Pressed Epoxy Vases
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
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.
Moreover, it is a long-lasting material. The pressed Project facilitates a short and fast manufacturing
process from “semi-manufactured goods” into a finalized product.
