These hyperreal vessels are the work of British designer Matt Davis who took the idea of basic ceramics and threw it out the window. Instead, Davis merges modern technology with some traditional techniques to give his work a look that appears to be digital and living inside your video screen.

First, 3D printed models are made after using software to design the objects. The models are molded and then slip cast in either bone china or black porcelain and carefully fired while being held up so that they don’t collapse. The results are either a low res (above) or high res (below) look, much like an image on your screen.
