Joan & Jack Hardie

We make ceramics that are inspired by natural forms and try to give them a sense of life and movement. In 2014 my husband Jack and I decided to experiment with printing clay using a 3D printer. There were no commercial 3D clay printers available, so Jack built one. We first design our pots in a computer aided design program and prepare all our clay by wetting and hand kneading. All our pots are porcelain and are mostly coloured using body stains.

3D printing makes it possible to create ceramic forms not achievable by other means. Combining art, craft and technology in a new way opens upĀ  possibilities that are fascinating to explore.
