This early PhD project involved returning to the research of Dr Katie Bunnell’s Bunny Beakers. The aim was to use the project to familiarise myself with digital-ceramic making, especially in the context of the Leach Pottery. I started working with some of Bernard Leach’s New Zealand sketches as the basis for the decoration and used Adobe Illustrator, Rhino 3d, laser cutters, a 3 axis milling machine, plaster lathes, slip blunger and the Leach Pottery’s soda kilns to make the work. Materials used included acrylic, silicon, milling board, plaster, and formulating a casting slip based on the Leach throwing body.
