Jade Crompton is a Masters student at Liverpool Hope University specialising in Ceramics and Digital Design. Her practice involves the research into the integration of digital technologies and ceramic mould making. Her work combines the traditional mould making and slip casting techniques with the new digital technologies including 3D digital modelling, 3D printing and laser-cutting to produce a new and contemporary ceramic collection.
Jade Crompton’s practice involves a unique pairing of two very individual material areas, Ceramics and Digital Design. Jade’s work centres on pushing the boundaries of ceramics through the use of digital tooling, computer aided design and manufacturing. She achieves this by applying cutting edge technologies to traditional methods of mould making and slip castng to improve on the accuracy, finish and design of her pieces. Jade’s tableware collection was inspired by the pattern, geometry and colour of crystal formations. The unique features of her collection are the insulated Crystal Coffee Cups; instead of handles these pieces have crystals cut away from the body to create grip and an inner wall cavity to retain the heat. Each piece of her ceramic collection started life out as a 3D print, this was then used to produce a plaster mould and cast in Semi‐Porcelain.
