héritage

A glass, a bowl, a pot - things that exists since hundred of years. Many of these had the same function then as they do now. From understanding the history of an everyday object you can tell so much about civilization - the rituals, needs and technical abilities. Most of these things disappear after a while or get stored in a museum if they‘re not longer needed or follow a general trend. Using the technology of a cnc styrocutter in combination with an ancient form of a pot, allowed to create a new kind of shape. In this way an ancient form got a second modern life.
