Re-Print CeramicsRemake Ceramics x Coudre
The recycling of ceramics is still rather new, as is 3D clay printing. The aim of this project is to develop more circular options for the 3D clay printing industry, by applying the ceramic recycling method, accepting the challenge to create products with 50 to 75% of recycled material.
The project aims at a four tiered output:
– Parametric modular lamps that show the benefit of recycled material in
combination with the possibilities of the 3D printing techniques developed by
– pre-made recycled clay packages for 3D printers ready to use. The production of the
packages will be outsourced to ateliers that work with people with distance to the
labour market, which can also serve as collection points for discarded ceramics;
– an open source knowledge platform would make the information accessible to
anyone by providing open manuals with printer and formulation documentation.
This would contribute to increase 3D printing literacy and awareness that these technologies exist and can be used to produce quality, sustainable products; – workshops and consultancy on how to 3D print with our recipe. The idea will lead to a highly innovative cradle-to-cradle approach and products and could be replicated by other craftsmen, designers and manufacturers to reduce waste and save costs.
FABRIQUE PUBLIQUE (The Netherlands)
Fabrique Publique is a design studio founded by Hanneke de Leeuw. The starting point for their designs is often social issues (f.i. womens’ rights or climate change) influenced by curiosity for shapes, materials and processes. These themes and curiosity are translated into designs (furniture, tableware), whatever suits the topic/material best.

Coudre studio represented by Franxesca Valeria Ustarez Rodriguez is a post-digital craft studio delves into the intersections of digital design and the morphogenic contingencies of materials. Coudre develops software, hardware and material recipes. Every single piece Coudre produces is unique, the product of a singular code and a particular need.
