San Fratello VirginiaThis essay discusses 3D printed material ombrés created by combining clay bodies from different regions around the world. It focuses specifically on the Bad Ombré vessels designed by Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello and uses them as examples to illustrate how an object, through it's material gradient, can tell a story about politics, borders, geology and place.
