Lathe Take Away is a project that explores and extends the capabilities of the human hand to carve a series of stools and vases.
Out of the two techniques of machine turning and throwing clay a hybrid process emerges which allows to shape materials which normally cannot be sculpted by hand.
The hand of a person is equipped with a chainmail glove to directly manipulate and determine the form of the material. Starting with a predetermined volume and method, the user is the final step in the production line.
Due to it being a quick and direct process, the person has to react to the constantly changing material. In this way, the human is both a spectator and driving factor in the production process.
A firm rubber coating turns the stools into robust objects for both in- and outdoors.
