Zoetrope pottery

Clay shaped on the potter’s wheel. Patterns mapped on the computer and transferred. Shapes painstakingly cut. The resulting shallow bowl is baked in a kiln, then spun and filmed at just the right speed. In this Zoetrope Pottery video, ceramic artist Kenny Sing of Turn Studio explores traditional animation techniques through modern pottery.

This silent 3d cube video takes another look at his process, this time with a series of turning glazed cubes:
