With Kickstarter I would like to raise the money to purchase a Thing O Matic 3D Printer as well as porcelain materials.  I will be using the 3D printer to produce original ABS plastic forms which will later be reproduced in porcelain and other materials.  The 3D printer will allow me to produce much more complex forms and explore relationships between fabrications and components.  The printed objects will be used as a starting point to produce functional items such as cups or plates.  The printed objects will range from rocks to pieces of architecture utilizing the ability to produce them seamlessly combining them with each other.  The backers of my project will receive an item(s) which will be born from this process.
