NEW YORK - July 17, 2014 - PRLog -- 3D printing afforded the artist, MG, an opportunity previously inconceivable.  She could utilize her perspective and experience as a female oil painter to manufacture unique artistic items one at a time.

Searching for, interpreting and creating beauty has been a lifelong endeavor for M.  Facing that challenge in the studio increased her appreciation for day to day items that support her effort.  According to M, “The ritual of making tea in the morning, setting the table for dinner or accessorizing before a night out, can all be transformed into moments of meditation given a well-designed object.  I want to contribute to people’s daily feelings of contentment.”

M’s life as an oil painter results in a different creative process.  Her ideas start conceptually, not anchored to any particular product.  For example, in her painting series ‘infinity’ she challenges the limits of the symbol by stretching, twisting and bending it.  The painting ‘infinity 16’ is released into the 3D world as a ring that wraps around itself and the finger of the wearer.  ( )  In another instance of her approach, the idea of holeyware began with the question; how can an item be completely defined by what would normally be considered its antithesis?  M’s answer is holeyware, ceramic glasses with holes, that don’t leak.  A channel runs right through the center which allows liquid to flow around it, but not escape.  ( )

The flexibility of 3D printing allows sloris to be idea centric.  In traditional manufacturing, they would have been forced to produce hundreds, if not thousands, of a single item to make it cost effective.  This results in the need to sell a significant number of that item before moving on to the next.  This benefit of using additive manufacturing means that even as a small business, sloris is able to bring to market a diverse selection of goods.

Ultimately, sloris offers an eclectic selection of unique and interesting items, from jewelry to dinnerware, with the majority of the items priced between $25 and $90.  3D printing makes it all possible, but it’s not about 3D printing, it’s about art in design.
