The works shown in the exhibition are ceramic objects printed by a three-dimensional printer developed by Gal-Or as the final project of his Design studies. The materials which are used for printing range from simple clay, local clay, Chinese porcelain, ceramic materials with advanced properties, and a mixture that includes organic and biodegradable materials. The objects exhibited reflect upon the evolving tension between the traditional world of pottery-making and modern technological innovation, where new sophisticated methods of manufacturing offer renewed unique and original interpretations.

ERAN GAL-OR (B. 1982) holds a B.Des in Industrial Design from the Holon Institute of Technology, where he built his first ceramic 3D printer as his graduation project.
