In sharing his approach to digital fabrication, Adam Chau discusses how cutting edge technology is changing the ceramics field, one plate at a time. He is demonstrating how he uses a CNC machine to surface ceramic plates with cobalt, showing his process from start to finish. You also have a chance to make you own brushes and learn how to apply some of his techniques to your own work.
