Abstrakt

Slipcasting is a rigid and complicated process. Abstrakt opens and reimagines the process by allowing users to cast their unique moulds and explore, play, and quickly prototype any form or shape. With its infinite possibilities and endless combinations, Abstrakt is a universe yet to be invoked, a space where users can feel inspired by the freedom to act without regard for plans. 


Abstrakt invites all its users to play, be creative and discover the craft of slip casting in ways they had never been able before.

Whats NEXT for Abstrakt

Working on new patters for the moulds and looking for ways to introduce this in schools as a workshop. 

 

Looking for a sponsor who can push the project to a new level and potentially launch it!
