Posts tagged choices
We had to make some choices since there were a lot of bowls, plates, hair brushes and other ceramics. To distinguish them we gave them names. We joked about ‘Harry Pottery’ and decided to choose the names from Harry Potter characters. We based our choices at differences of advantages and interesting characteristics. Since we didn’t know how much time it would take to digitalise the cups and plates, we numbered them in order of importance.
We took in account the different types of advantages.
To make the cups useful again, we need to fix the holes.
Some cups like Harmione and Hagrid have some nice details. Since the CT scanner is not that accurate we have to find other solutions for bringing those details back.
- Fixing techniques
There are different ways used for fixing the objects. How can we translate those methods in our new design?
We decided to exclude the hair brushes in our process, because it has nothing to do with tableware.
Here the advantage is to replace the three separate shards. Diameter of +/- 18 centimeters.
Small plate. Missing a piece and two repaired cracks. Diameter of +/- 15 centimeters.
Kind of fruit bowl with lid. It has nails and glue as fixing methods. The cracks are really fragile, but as good as complete. Diameter of +/- 25 centimeters.
We liked this small cup because of its small hole. Diameter of 5 centimeters.
This one is familiar to Hagrid, but much smaller. The one defect is the bottom which is fixed. The cup is complete. Diameter +/- 15 centimeters.
