Boston Ceramics is part of the FIT Additive Manufacturing Group and was founded 2016 by Carl Fruth and Andrew Jeffery. FIT is technology leader in the field of additive manufacturing and covers everything from the production of prototypes and special series to software and hardware solutions.
Boston Ceramics is overturning 30,000 years of ceramic production techniques with the development and introduction of industrial scale ceramic 3D printing. Our mission is to turn a designer’s intent into reality using the latest 3D printing and materials technology combined with traditional ceramic firing and glazing arts to produce ceramics of unrivaled beauty, design innovation and functionality. Our service is truly at the intersection of engineering and art.
3D printing allows creation of design complexity unattainable by conventional means of molding and pressing. We manufacture directly from CAD and can deliver a designer‘s true intent without compromise.
Our ability to go directly from computer design to finished ceramic product in a few days dramatically reduces product development times. We can easily produce multiple versions and iterations of a product.
Without the need for tooling, small scale production batches of designer products are feasible. There is no engineering, tooling, or inventory to worry about in addressing niche markets. Production can be adjusted to match demand.
With our innovative technology, years of experience with ceramic, in-depth knowledge about additive manufacturing and commitment to product quality, we are able to realize different ceramic objects. Our latest project is a collaboration with DESIGN EARTH.
is a collaborative practice led by El Hadi Jazairy and Rania Ghosn. The office’s work engages the geographic to open up a range of aesthetic and political concerns for architecture and urbanism. Literally, ‘earth-writing’ from the Greek geo (earth) and graphia (writing), the practice of making geographies involves the coupled undertakings of “writing about,” projecting or representing the earth and also “writing on,” marking, forming or presenting again a world.
Trash Peaks proposes six projects that place the matters of waste – its flows, ecologies, and logistics – at the center of urban concerns. The six projects are: 1) Plastisphere, recycles obsolete plastic waste into a plastidome that hovers on top of the Changsin hilltop toy market; 2) E-Fungi Volcano, deploys fungi species over five levels of extraction to mine different rare earth metals from the e-waste stream in the Yongsan Electronics Market; 3) Janus Incinerator, embedded into the Bukhansan Mountain, burns waste from decommissioned landfills to power a quarter of the metropolis’ energy demands; 4) Towering Construction, wraps Seoul’s waste of concrete, steel, and wood around Mount Namsan; 5) Leachate Cenotaph, filters organic contaminant and ammonia concentrations in the reclaimed Sudokwon Landfill, 6) Methane Aviary, retrofits the vertical gas pipes of the excavated Nanjido island into an aviary forest. The installation presents the six projects through the artifacts of carpet, folding screen, and ceramics tableware. more
