One of the smaller projects on Kickstarter was started by Brock DeBoar, who wants to explore the possibilities 3D-printing has for porcelain sculpture.
The artist said:
I will be using the 3D printer to produce original ABS plastic forms which will later be reproduced in porcelain and other materials. The 3D printer will allow me to produce much more complex forms and explore relationships between fabrications and components.
The ultimate aim is to use the printed objects as a "starting point" for functional items including cutlery and plates.
The project's Kickstarter campaign managed to secure $2,585 based on a $2,500 goal.
