Emerging Objects founders launch KS for The Bottery 3D printed ceramics makerspace in Oakland

The vessels explore the nature of creating a single object from two different clay bodies

Not since the invention of the throwing wheel has an innovation come along as transformative in shaping ceramics as 3D printing. Conceived by 3D printing pioneers Emerging Objects, The Bottery will be a space where robotic ceramics can be made and enjoyed.  The goal of the new crowdfunding campaign launched by Ronal Rael and Virginia Sanfratello, EO’s founders, is to create a design manufactory for ceramic innovation using state-of-the-art technology.

“We believe in the potential of 3D printed ceramics to allow anyone to make customized design-oriented functional pottery. 3D printing ceramics requires highly specialized spaces, tools, and know-how, which we have spent years cultivating. Now, we want to share our expertise to enable and empower others.”


The Bottery will be a space where we host educational workshops in 3D printing clay for individuals and companies, making it possible for anyone to learn how to produce technological, functional, or sculptural ceramics. No matter what your expertise in 3D printing or ceramics is (or lack thereof!), the workshops will provide the tools to produce beautiful customized ceramics using only quality, environmentally safe clays and glazes.

An easy-to-use app will enable anyone to design functional ceramics. Anyone who has an idea for a single ceramic object or a whole line of ceramic pieces can use The Bottery services to bring their ideas to life. The Bottery has also teamed up with 3D Potter to offer a line of ceramic 3D printers to bring this technology home and create robotic pottery at home, studio, or company. The printers use full-body clay, allowing anyone to create large, high-quality, ceramic work using any clay you wish, from terracotta, earthenware, or porcelain.
