brittle.design
 
a design studio based in Goa(India), brittle.design is a blend of modern design, classic materials and 3D Printing. Not only our designs are nature inspired, but also our process is based completely on biodegradable/recyclable materials with very low impact on the environment.
Our products are contemporary and original. Each design is an attempt to deliver something new and unique.
the process
Each design begins as a sketch on a paper, which is then modeled and sculpted in 3d CAD programs. The final 3D Model is then sent to a 3D Printer. Several molds of the 3D Printed design are taken for slip-casting. The 3D Printed object is then stored away for future use. From here on its a simple mass production process used by the entire ceramic industry - slip-casting. The firing is done in an electric kiln. 
We combine modern design, classic materials and technology in our work... but in a very nature friendly way. Our use of 3D Printing is restricted to PLA (poly-lactic acid), a biodegradable plastic derived from renewable resources such as corn starch and sugarcane. We print only once per design and use that print to make multiple plaster molds for slip-casting (an eighteenth century technique of mass producing pottery).
