Not Your Grandmother's Wedgewood

From the newly found A very interesting site on new design. I found these pieces so fascinating.

Michael Eden created the Wedgwoodn’t tureen by using rapid manufacturing and ceramic materials which don’t need firing.

A research student in Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art in London, Eden has been experimenting with methods of 3D printing using digital data to create ceramic objects with the same properties as conventional ceramics.
