This tureen was made by Michael Eden in 2010 and acquired by the Crafts Council Collection in the same year.
Eden brings together traditional ceramic craft skills and digital technology including 3D printing, additive layer manufacturing and non-fired ceramic materials.
Eden took an iconic object from the Industrial Revolution - a Wedgewood tureen - and re-designed it using Computer Aided Design. His knowledge of ceramics enabled him to rapid manufacture the piece from a plaster and gypsum material to which a non-fired ceramic coating was applied.
